We live in what I would describe as (dare I say it?) an old-fashioned neighborhood.Its a close knit community where our liitle ones converge on the street before dinner and ride their bigwheels and trycicles as the mommies skurry about visiting and watching for cars.When there is a new baby we make a schedule and cook for that family.In the summer there is early morning swim team at our neighborhood "club" for the older children and afternoon swim lessons for the little ones. What to do in the winter? For the past 3 years,the neighborhood has sponsored a lovely Nativity and hot choklit'event. Being the actress of the community,they very sweetly ask me to be Mary.
This year I ask if I could direct the event.You know just a little sprucing up,a couple of cues for the little shepherds ,so their mommies won't have to say "go" and push them toward the manger in their little bathrobes.It was another succesful year,but total bummer, no pics of Magic ,the nipping llama or Dolly the sheep(note to self: Mary does not need to wear red lipstick next year)!
Finally a picture of my other golden angel,Crooked Halo sang her sweet little heart out. Singing "Silent Night" a'cappella is no easy feat,American Idol,here we come!
