Interactive Sharing Time

Yesterday I attended the Christmas concert interactive sharing time at the pre-school that two of my 4-year old grandkids attend.  Their teacher, Mrs. Peters, a lovely Irish lady, kept the event informal so as not to put pressure on the kids to perform.  She told the parents to feel free to walk around the room with our cameras and join in the fun.

For some reason my a lot of my pictures ended up blurry but I'll try to post the best of the lot.

Aidan (Amy's son) and Elly (Sara`s daughter)

Aidan, Grammie and Elly

Elly, in performance mode

Aidan, deep in thought

Aidan loves the dancing activities

The Moms get to perform too

The wonderful Mrs. Peters with my little people

Elly with her dancing partner - she`s so serious

Aidan giving his partner a twirl

Grammie Rocking Around the Christmas Tree with Elly

Aidan as Joseph.  I think those two on the floor are cherubs, or maybe sheep

The full Nativity pageant.  Can you see Elly behind one of the cherubs

Take a bow - Mrs. Peters, her helpers and the kids

It seems these events are the most fun when the participants are really young.  We all had a great time.

On another completely different note, I`m having difficulty posting comments on some of my favorite blogs.  It`s very frustrating.  So TaryTerre, Ma, Michael and Hanna, Fiona, and some others, I`m still reading your blogs and trying to comment.  Maybe someday the problem will resolve itself.  Don`t give up on me.

I love the angel wing hats. I need one of those. What cute pictures! Those memories will be etched in your heart. I hope comment problems will clear up.

What a wonderful Christmassy pageant day! I just love all the pictures. Those little ones do make everything wonderful. What a blessing! Sorry you've been unable to comment. I cannot reason what the problem is. Some have said that if you make sure the box is not checked by where it says Keep me signed in, when signing in it makes a difference. ???? Anyway I did enjoy your post today. Hope your Thursday is a great one!

Oh, my daughter will turn 17 in six days, but I can remember these programs like they were yesterday. Always brings a tear to my eye and puts the Christmas spirit in my heart. Thank you so much for sharing.

How wonderful - most schools and nurseries over here now longer allow photos/filming, for fear of perverts/paedophiles!
I've had trouble commenting on some blogs recently - I just get an error message - I keep meaning to put a little mention on my blog, similar to yours .... I must try harder to remember!

Hi Pat. What super gorgeous photos for us to look at today, and your two little grandchildren are just so precious! Don't they look wonderful in their lovely little outfits. Thank you for sharing with us.

adorable! Elly is looking so different as she matures! Wonderful time. I just came back from my third concert this week. Saw your Kenzie tonight! Hope you're feeling better.


Your grandchildren are precious. Aidan looks so handsome all dressed up in his shirt and tie. And Elly is sweet as pie in her pretty red dress. At that age there is such wonder in everything they do. This was a wonderful celebration. Glad Grandma had some fun too. I have had alot of trouble commenting too. Ended up using a different browser.

Precious, precious pictures. I sure miss having little grandchildren when I remember all their grand performances.
