We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Marley had a solo....

Marley had her first School Christmas Concert. 
Here are the pictures of that night. 
 The concert was in the Dream Makers Theater at the Casino. 
Weird to us. 
Sad for some kids I'm sure because it was easy for parents and grandparents to slip away and get drinks or gamble. 
There was a drunk grandpa behind us and by the end he was talking out loud and being pretty rude. 
Very interesting experience.


Dropped Marley off to sit with her class.

The Stage.
The Audience.

I look like a crazy person in both of these...I was excited!

The Traditional Drums started the evening.
The Principal.

The Music Teacher.
Marley entering stage right.
As soon as I saw her I started crying.
I have a kindergartner!!!!! 
WHAT!?!?
Walking across the stands.






First, they sang "We Love Santa Clause."
I had never heard that song and it was a jumbled mess of music.
Sorry, kindergartners...it was.
So, I didn't upload the video here.

The second song they sang was "Christmas Candles."
And to our surprise Marley had a solo.
The first video is her solo and she sings,
"Christmas Candles,
All around the world,
Shinning soft and low, 
Spread a gentle glow." 
I always have bad luck uploading videos from my DSLR that are more that about a minute and then I was too much of a crazy mom to keep an eye on the timing, so I did it in two very uneven videos. 

But, you get the idea. 

This next video is the solo of the little boy in her class (same song),
and then the whole class joins again and finishes the song. 
(I'm not sure what his lyrics were?)


Anyway, it was a fun night!
And I would say a milestone for Marley and our family.

Isi is so much bigger than I remember! She is a cutie and her mischief reminds me so much of my Elise.
