Our little cherub.

Cullen preformed in the Cathedral School Christmas Program today.  The  32 adorable 4K students sang their hearts out!  The sweet kids walked onto the stage hands folded and huge smiles on their faces.  The songs performed included "The Friendly Beasts", "An Angel Came From Heaven", "Jesus Born in Bethlehem", "Santa's Helpers" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".  Cullen does not seem to lack in confidence and doesn't seem nervous in front of a crowd.  His face light up when he saw his fans in the audience:  Mom, Dad, Simone, Tracy, Jameson and Mimi.  He put his all into the performance and we couldn't be prouder.

Simone's Holiday Program

Simone starred (along with her 3-year-old preschool class) in the 2013 YMCA Holiday Show.  And this year, Cullen was along as a member of the audience.  After the babies made their cute entrance, Quinn shook bells and sang a nice rendition of Jingle Bells.  Then, Simone's class pranced in.  The 3-year-old class sang "Up on the Housetop", "Comin' down the chimney" and then danced to the "Santa Rap".  She sang her little heart out and did the corresponding actions.  When the "Santa Rap" started, her dancing feet got going.  Those little red sparkle shoes never stopped moving!  Finally, Jameson ended the program with "Jingle Bell Rock".  At the end, Santa made an appearance and this year, Simone was not scared.  Before the program, Simone asked if we thought Santa would think she was pretty in her new dress!  I believe he thought she as beautiful and quite the talent!

LaVigne Thanksgiving CF

What is a CF, you might ask?  Well, it's a clusterf#$%.  We celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with the LaVigne side of the family.  It was indeed a CF, but I mean that in the nicest sense of the word!  There were 40-some people (8 of whom were under the age of 5).  There was a mish-mash of food including 3 turkeys, 1 ham and plenty of fresh veggies from Beth's garden.  Tons of props to the Quirk Murphy clan from Key West.  Not only did they brave the cold temps, but they also flew up 30 lbs. of fresh seafood (grouper, lobster, shrimp and stone crab) for the day-after-Thanksgiving feast.  The food was great and the company was even better.  CF rules!
