Little Christmas Stars

Cullen and Simone (along with their classmates) recently starred in the Christmas program put on by their daycare.  Cullen was very tight-lipped prior to the program and would not give any clues as to his songs.  Simone, on the other hand, sang her songs for days leading up to the show.  The kids got dressed up in their Christmas best:  Cullen opted to wear a tie and Simone chose her sparkly red shoes.   First, we were entertained by Quinn who played the drums for "Little Drummer Boy".  Then Simone took stage to perform "I'm a Little Snowman" (sung to the tune of  "I'm a Little Teapot") and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".  The funniest part is that Simone forgot to sing when she got up on stage.  We think she moved her lips for a few words, but mainly she had a bit of stagefright (there were probably over 200 people in the gym).  After she was off stage, Simone proceeded to dance in the aisle for the rest of the songs.  Jameson's class came next and he sang his little heart out.  I am positive that everyone in the gym (even those in the far corners) heard Jameson's sweet voice!  Finally, Cullen (the crafty veteran) took stage.  His class showcased three numbers: "Going on a Bear Hunt", "All I Want for Christmas is a Hippopotamus" and "Santa Clause is Coming to Town".  His class took stage wearing their handmade hippo hats.  Cullen was very into the performance and was one of the only kids who did all the moves - even the booty shake.  We would like to thank our fan section for attending:  Mimi, Bobby, Grandma Liz and Grandpa Mark.  It made the evening that much more memorable.  We still working on the video to post - stay tuned.
