The excitement was palpable, eight tiny reindeer (times 3) were ready to fly (musically speaking, of course): First glimpse of mama and daddy in the audience: Wheeeee, this just calls for a sisterly hug! Ro's hat was slipping down and she could barely see, so I tried to pantomime that she should push the hat up. She saw me and yelled out in the middle of the program "Mama, what were you doing?!" Yeesh. Asleep on the hay: Adorable little reindeer: Proud grandparents (my mom definitely cried during the show, and we're not sure about BobBob...): Oooo, bells. The festive factor instantly goes up if you add bells: Shake it baby, shake it. Ree was in her element, rocking out and doing all the moves (some choreographed, some her own). Ro was a little nervous, but did a great job and was happy to see her family and have a sister's hand to hold every once in a while: Done performing, and ready to "decorate" (I use that term loosely) some gingerbread men: Huh, me? No, I wasn't eating anything... Mom, I've told you before that decorating is very serious business. I'm concentrating here and don't have time for a picture. The masterpieces: Oh yeah, this was fun: Shoot, almost forgot to include the video: Merry Christmas everyone!
