our singing reindeer!

I know I promised y'all a "NOLA: Part Two," (don't give up hope--it's next on the docket!) but I wanted to share these pictures of my Sweet Little Leighton:



Today was her Christmas Music Program at the church preschool she attends. She wanted to wear a pretty dress and big bow and leopard print shoes (okay, okay, I probably had some influence in that). In all honesty, I don't think she had any clue she would be performing, though she had been gleefully practicing her songs for several weeks.

Grammy ELC and Pa-Pa made an extra early (and extra long--thanks to the terrible DFW morning traffic) trip up North to our little suburb to see her musical debut. LL was so surprised when she walked onto the stage and saw us (Daddy included!): her adoring fans! They sang several songs--"Jingle Bells" (accompanied by actual jingle bells!), "Away in the Manager," "We wish you a Merry Christmas," and her most favourite: The Reindeer Pokey. As ELC said, she "turned herself about with charm and enthusiasm!" We were all so proud.

It was such a fun and special morning. LL is filled with the Christmas Spirit this year. I adore every. single. second.

Have a holly, jolly Wednesday!
