Our Christmas Angel
Ann Catherine and Lily Baker had their Christmas program at daycare last week. Seriously, is there anything sweeter than watching little children sing Christmas songs about Jesus' birth? Their Christmas program is always one of the highlights of the holiday season for me!
As Ann Catherine's class starting walking in, I noticed they were dressed as angels. I had no idea they were going to do this. Those of you who follow my blog know how special angels have become to me since Melissa died. As I watched Ann Catherine dressed in that white dress with angel wings and a halo, I got tears in my eyes. I just thought, 'there is a little angel in Heaven who looks EXACTLY like you.' That thought was pretty overwhelming to me. To see my little angel on Earth and to think of my sweet angel in Heaven just filled my heart. (If you're wondering why her gown is pulled up, she pulled her arms out of the sleeves and when the song started, she couldn't figure out how to get them back in. Chris and I were cracking up!)
So, where is Lily Baker? I was holding the movie camera when her class came in, so I didn't get any pictures. However, I did take some before she and Ann Catherine left that day for daycare. This one turned out pretty cute.
Have you ever tried to take pictures of a 3-year-old and 2-year-old at the same time? Good grief!! I was begging, bribing and doing all I could do just to get them to look at me at the same time.
On a side note, I wanted to post this picture. Don't you just love lazy Saturday mornings? I do! And, so do my girls. I snapped this picture Saturday morning while they were laying on the sofa watching TV. I just had to share.
