William's 1st Christmas Program

It's Friday!  I'm always excited about Fridays, but today was an extra special one because William sang in his very first Christmas program at school.  I was so nervous for him!  He is always singing when we're at home, but there are times when he won't sing out loud because there are a lot of people around (hmmm....sounds a little like me!).  So, I just prayed that he would be at peace and sing his little heart out - no matter how many people were listening.

William's class sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  I could barely see him because he was standing in the back, but I was so proud to see him holding up his little star as they sang, "up above the world the high, like a diamond in the sky."  It was so adorable.
At the end of the program, all of the kids sang We Wish You a Merry Christmas.  It was then that we waved to William, and he was so excited to see us at first, but then he just started crying.  Poor thing!
Once the program was over, we went back to his classroom to enjoy some yummy snacks.  I just can't believe how big William is now!  I mean, I remember when he was just a little baby who drank from a bottle and needed to be carried around everywhere.  And now, he's a handsome young boy who can walk and talk and eat and drink (and sing!) all by himself.  I'm so proud to be his mommy!
