Joy To The World

Did you ever know that it could be painful to be joyful to the world? According to Katie's version of the famous song "Joy To The World," it's painful to see the king. HA HA! Have you ever just sat and listened to your children singing the traditional Christmas carols? Katie had her School Christmas Program this morning. She did great! We didn't get to sit too close to the front, but I could see Katie's mouth just as wide as she could, singing those songs. A little later into the morning, she was still into the Christmas spirit, singing Christmas carols. As I was folding clothes, I was listening to her singing "Joy to the World." I had to control myself as she was singing the verse - Let earth receive her King, instead her version was It hurts to see the King. You know, I didn't have the heart to correct her because I thought it was precious. She kept singing this version to the song over and over. If your child has a cute or funny version to one of the Christmas Classics, please share it with me. I'd love to hear them.

Katie's School Christmas Program

As mentioned above, Katie had her Christmas Program today. The children did great and seemed to have a lot of fun. Overall it was a very nice production. Afterwards, we all met in the gym for refreshments. Katie and her little friends went straight to the Christmas cookies. All she ate was the icing off of it. Later, she told me the cookies didn't taste all that good. Mrs. Krenkel announced once everyone got inside the gym, Santa was making his way into the room. Some children looked concerned and others were excited to see Santa. In fact, it was my old boss. I couldn't mistake his voice for a second. Sure enough, it was him. He was great with the children and he even coaxed Katie to sit in his lap and I could actually see her talking to him. I couldn't believe my eyes. I couldn't watch her a lot because I was talking with a lady, we use to work together. She was helping Santa line up the children. She came over and asked me if Katie was mine. Tasha said she couldn't mistaken Katie as being mine and she won over Colton. Thankfully, Doug took lots of pictures of Katie on Santa's lap.
