Merry Christmas from Cassi the Angel

Cassi's long anticipated debut was last night. The annual Christmas performance was held with almost 200 1st and 2nd graders giving one fantastic performance.

Cassi and her friend Lara were chosen to be angels this year. It was Cassi's first ever special solo-like part in a school show. The had to sing 2 short verses of a song titled "Snow is falling".

Even though Cori did not perform in this particular show she was asked to be a greeter and pass out programs. She was very festive and full of spirit. It was a good job for her.
She also spent some time singing with Grandpa and her friend Emily during intermission. It was very fun.

Since Cassi's part of the performance came a little later in the night, we had some time to waste in the corridor. While we were waiting we took a couple photos with friends. Two of them showed up unplanned in identical dresses. On the left is Cierra and on the right is Ericka.

After the performance we took a few photos. Cassi was very excited to receive roses from Mommy AND from Grandpa & GiGi.
We decided to be a bit untraditional and give her music teacher chocolate rather than flowers which she adored. Her name is Mrs. Larson and she is incredibly talented. She has been teaching for over 20 years in the area and is truly loved!

After the show there was a Santa helper there visiting. We tried to talk Cali into chatting with him. She stared at him a while and thought a lot about it but in the end decided now wasn't the time.
All in all Cassi was our shining star in the night. Her voice was beautiful and I couldn't have been more proud. Neither could she. I would imagine this will be one of those memories that are burned into her thoughts for a long time. She was glowing all night. Looking at the photos, I'm sure you understand when I tell you I was as well.

Here area a few photos I managed to snap of the girls prior to leaving the house.

Merry Christmas!
