At the end of our kids Christmas program,
it took about 10 rounds of
"Here Comes Santa Claus"
before the man in red appeared.
Immediately, my "little E" hid beneath my legs.
But after some coaxing, from her cousin,
she agreed to go visit to get her back of treats.
Santa asked how old she was.
Without opening her mouth, she held up three little fingers.
My sincere and serious Syd
cracked a bit of a grin
although she was thinking
at the ripe ol' age of eight
that she might be too old for this.
And at last, my 11 year old decided he would
speak man-to-man with Saint Nicholas
for a bag of treats.
Classic Christmas memories
of Christmas programs.
We will capture them while we can.
Tom played his guitar and a drum.
And Sydney had her first piano performance:
a duet of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas.
