This year (December 13...I'm a little behind)was the start of many Christmas programs to come for us. The Lovell Elementary school hosts a K-3 Christmas concert every year. I was NOT prepared for how crazy it was going to be! Carson had to be there early so he could find his seat and be ready for the show and when we showed up "early" to get him to his seat, every seat in the Hyartt (where they held it) was taken! It was CRAZY! Luckily, my mother in law and sister in law were able to get three seats and were kind enough to give them up (they had to leave as soon as the kindergarteners were done)to me and my parents. Otherwise, we would have been standing out in the lobby with the many other parents who didn't have seats. Once we finally got sat down, I opened up the program to find that Carson had a speaking part...a total surprise to me...I had no idea and was kind of freaking out that I was supposed to have helped him memorize something. But, he did a great job saying his part, which was "We are very grateful for mittens and gloves." They sang three songs very well. Next year we will be prepared for the chaos of the Christmas program! I was just glad that I had the help of my mother in law and parents. Christian was out of town for work meetings and I'm pretty sure that I would have been a basket case by the end of it had I not had help! Sadly, we were so far away that I couldn't get a good picture with my camera and I haven't gotten any from my mom's yet.
