Is It Too Late for Christmas?

It's never too late, right?!   Pardon my absence over the last couple of weeks.  Thanks for sticking with me.  There will be more on that later but for now, let's catch up a bit, shall we?

I think I might have mentioned Colin's Christmas program at his preschool.  After a lackluster performance last year, I instructed him to be sure to sing along this year and to sing loud enough for me to hear him.  This was a rare time he had his listening ears on because the boy belted some "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and several other numbers.

There was no hiding behind the nose picker this time.  Put the spotlight on the kid because he's ready to perform.  I didn't say he was the next Justin Bieber but maybe Milli Vanilli.  Just look at the excitement on his face as he gets ready to approach the stage.

And the crowd goes wild!

Well at least there was some excitement when it was time for the highlight of the morning, snack time!

He had those cookies and apple slices finished before Sawyer could even tug at Santa's beard.  My boys sure do love to eat.  I can't imagine where they get that from?!

It's amazing what changes in a years time.  Last year Colin was painfully shy and would barely look at the audience, let alone sing up on stage.  This year, he proudly marched up there, knew every word and belted it from the bottom of his heart.  I can only imagine what next year will hold.


  1. LOVE that picture of him walking in. He looks so confident and proud! Hope your move went/is going well!

  2. The picture of him walking in is SO CUTE! He looks like he's singing "sexy and I know it" to himself as he struts down through there..haha (okay so that isn't entirely appropriate for a little guy but it's just funny)
