In mid December the girls' school held their annual Christmas show. Parents were invited to attend both the evening show and the afternoon rehearsal, but I attended the rehearsal alone while Lisa handled the evening duties.
[As usual, forgive the red-eye. A college degree on my wall and yet I can't seem to master Photbucket's edit feature. Sigh.]
This next bit is of no interest unless you are one of the many family members who flagrantly skipped this years performance and must make amends - to you, I present video footage of the rehearsal.
Note: if you did attend the program and are still reading, kindly drop me a line in the comments with the full name of each song K5 and 2nd grade performed. Thanks!
Here's LuLu with 'Must be Santa'. She's on the top left of the group in a blue sweatshirt and jeans.
And A MUST SEE - the traditional K4/K5 Russian Dance!
Here are four songs sung by YaYa's class. She's fourth from the left in the second row, and if you know her you can pick out her voice at many points in these videos. I'm proud she doesn't clam up on stage!
Her class did Mele Kalekemaka (sp?), which I'm familar with from the Bing Crosby version, and I enjoyed it a bunch.
Here's Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
And 'All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth'
[thanks to Oftencold for helping with the html!]
A fine performance by both girls!
