Away in a Manger






"the stars in the sky...."











Papa, Mimi and 'Aunt' Judy

Stella just had her Christmas Program at school on Thursday night. The evening really started out as a fiasco! I rushed to get her after work, and had to take her home for dinner and change her clothes before we took her back to school for the performance. I had her all bundled up and ready... and my car wouldn't start!! I of course freaked out.... and Taylor locked his keys in the car at the school so he couldn't come get me. Of course!! So my dad rushed to pick us up. Then there was an accident at Mission and Crossover, which my dad completely drove right through. The cop was saying NO! NO! but he just kept driving. Hey, we have priorities! And Stella's opening night on Broadway (haha) was the #1 priority. The performance was quick... they brought the tinies out in the middle of the older kid's performance and they sang Away in a Manger twice. Stella even did the motions!! I put the video up, she is on it about halfway through the two minute video. It made me very proud and very emotional. It seems like yesterday she was my new baby, and now she is a Big Girl who is learning to be independent. I hope she always will need her momma, though!



if you want to watch this video, scroll to the bottom

and stop the music player first. Also, she is about

a minute into this video so feel free to fast forward.
