Christmas Pageant

To my son Tommy,

There I sat in the activity center, looking at a drawn curtain and hearing all types of shuffling and moving and practicing behind the stage.  Then the curtain started to move as if someone was trying to find the break.  I sat there whispering in my head "It is going to be Tommy, it is going to be Tommy" with a certain amount of anticipation but a bit of dread as well.  Sure enough a little familiar face peaks out and smiles.  Then another peak and another peak.  When your mom told you to go listen to Ms. Mary you decided that meant you should no longer peak out the center split in the curtains and headed off to the side.  You have your mother wrapped my son, because as much as she wanted to be mad at ya for not listening and being the "trouble maker" she was too busy laughing and admiring your cuteness.

Today was the PreK3 Christmas Pageant where you had the part of Joseph.  You had about 5 adoring fans out in the audience and you were hamming it up.  You somehow shifted from outgoing to shy and back to outgoing in a blink of an eye, multiple times.  One second you were singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" with all your heart and the next second you had the shepherd like head piece turned around to hide your face.  I was having trouble with the flip video camera so I missed some parts here and there but between the 4 or 5 devices we had going, I will be able to upload some future embarassing photos and videos (more than the 3 or 4 on this post) to pull out when you meet the woman of your dreams.

Sincerely with love from your dad,

  1. Love the nursery school (pre-k 3 or whatever they're calling it now) play. It's like 30 minutes of Ms Mary trying to herd water. Great videos!
