My Little Stars

My little stars, quite literally, Londyn anyway. Tuesday afternoon despite the icy conditions, the girls had their school play. It was quite short, but there's just something about watching your kids perform, however small the part, that just warms your heart. I get teary eyed at nearly any perfomance involving kids, even if they aren't my own. It's sort of pathetic really. It's just one of those things that makes me genuinely happy. Londyn was a star and sang some carols. (She hates the star head thing, it is apparently pretty uncomfortable, but isn't she an adorable little star?)
Skylar played the part of Mary in the actual play. She took her role very seriously. She always wanted to make sure she was at practice and she talked about it frequently. It's funny to me that she likes being on stage because she is extremely shy, but she LOVES it. The interesting thing is that she was very concerned about practice and getting it all right, but she didn't even have any lines, she just had to know where and when to go on the stage. She made a wonderful Mary if I may say so. She was very proud of herself and very anxious for us to see her perform.
And, of course, the mommy and girls pic after the performance. Londyn is obviously a little distracted by something.

Oh my gosh, those pictures are adorable. I can see why the star thing would get on her nerves but it is cute.

I love Mary's headdress.

Those costumes - star and Mary - are adorable. And I am right there with you on crying whenever you see children perform. I can't imagine what I will be like next year when Jack is off to school and taking part in school plays and such.
