Pickin' and Grinnin'

Well, I am still here. In body, if not in mind.

I am in need of some time in the stable, but other than that, I could be considered sane. At least, legally.

The last few days have been crazy. The weekend was a cold and rainy blur. Daughter had dress rehearsal for the church music program, a birthday party, Christmas shopping with Daddy, and the music program itself Sunday night.

During the dress rehearsal, one of the little girls (who, by the way, just so happens to be in my Sunday School class) decided that she was going to add her own moves to the music number. While every other child was singing and doing the motions, Katie decided to pick her nose.

The music director yelled out, "Katie! Don't pick your nose on stage!"

Katie stopped and joined in with the rest of the kids, not missing a single beat.

Sunday night, during the real, live performance, Katie was singing her sweet little heart out right there on the front row when she paused and ducked behind her friend.

To pick her nose.

I laughed right there in the pew. When I looked back at Katie's parents, I saw Katie's dad shrinking in his seat, shaking his head.

Don't worry dad. At least she was discreet about it.

Kids' Christmas programs are the best, aren't they?

Ours was last week, and it was a real treat. One of the little angels kept eyeing the microphone, all the while inching closer and closer to it and away from the group. She'll be a soloist one day, I'm sure!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I totally love kid's performances because you just never know what they are going to do. It's great!

Our children's musical will be Sunday morning-- can't wait to see what some little charmer will do!!!! I'm betting on a wrestling match between two little boys.

LOL about your little gal! I love your blog's title. You're right, this ain't NY. A NYer would have kept picking, crowds or no crowds.
