It was a really nice one!!
Both girls had Christmas concerts at school this year. Unfortunately Therese's was during the day and I was at work :-( But I enjoyed hearing her practice the songs at home: "Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star". Greta's songs were "One Little Hanukah Candle" and a dance to the Nat King Cole song "Happiest Christmas Tree". Matthew wasn't going to be able to make it, but the concert was so long that he was able to arrive just in time! Greta's face totally lit up when she saw him in the crowd. She waved in awe from the stage in her write shirt, ponytail, and new snowflake necklace. She danced so enthusiastically. Afterwards I mentioned how she did so well and seemed to confident up there--she said smiling: "Well I didn't FEEL confident!" It was a sweet little moment. She also won the award for a spelling/word finding contest that night (while they weren't performing they were in their classroom), and the prize was some purple hubba bubba bubble gum!
This one has quite the sense of humor about her. A few days before Christmas it was time to get ready for bed. Therese was naked, with only socks on, and I caught her in the hallway like this holding her flashlight and swinging it around the space saying in a Louis Armstrong voice (based on the song), "Is that YOU Santa Claus?!" Oh my goodness, it was HILARIOUS!!!
Even though we don't get to Arizona much we've recently gotten to Skype with Great Grandma Jewel, and even with Great Grandpa Ronnie in Spokane a few months ago! It's pretty great they have nearly 4 sets of Great Grandparents still alive.
