Busy weekend

After work on Friday, we had to hurry up and get to the church for dress rehearsal... Ran thru the Christmas program twice- watched all the technical glitches get ironed out... Everybody hurrying up to get ready for the big weekend... Saturday, had to be there at 3... ran thru it a few more times before the real deal at 6pm. It's amazing watching all the little glitches and miscues in practice, and then seeing it all come together perfectly when the real show time gets there.... My little angel was amazing... They all were really... They all got to where they were going... they knew their lines... the did a great job! Sunday, we got there at 7 am and they did one run thru before the three real performances in a row... They made a change to the last number, they cut a song and had the kids do something totally different... Let the kids practice it one time... and they all pulled it off great! Sunday, they went thru the whole thing three times for real... The last two shows on Sunday, we were in charge of a group of angels... We hung out with them upstairs and kept them entertained until it was their time to go on... we got them herded up and to their place for their cue... then ran around backstage and collected them to take them back upstairs to wait for their next performance. Who knew that a bunch of little girls could be so rambunctious! Wow! But even then... I still had a blast! Even though I can't get the little songs out of my head... The three months of prep time were all worth it.... Yesterday afternoon we decided to take lil angel to see Narnia... She loved it! She cried when they killed Aslan... she was thrilled to see him back... she was full of questions about what it all meant... And by the time we got home yesterday, we were all pretty much exhausted.... Work today seems like a time to just relax after a busy busy weekend.... Here's a shot of my little star after it was all over eating cake and ice cream....
