December Nights, December Lights

Tuesday night Harrison performed in his Third Grade Musical.  Each grade does a "musical" every year and the third graders get to do a holiday program because theirs is in December.  This year's program was called "December Nights, December Lights."  They sang songs about lighting the menorah for Hanukkah, lighting the kinara for Kwanzaa, lighting candles for Las Posadas, and lighting store windows for Christmas.  Happy All-Inclusive Holiday!

Here's Harrison before the show started.  Over-the-moon, as always.  (Sorry these pictures are so noisy.  I didn't want to use my flash.)

Big finish!

So in love with this picture.  Harrison's face, the sneezing kid, the boys with the long hair looking like girls.  (Can we please agree to put an end to that trend?)  He did such a great job!

Afterwards I asked Harrison and his teacher, Miss D., if they would please pose really awkwardly for a picture.  They complied.

Harrison was brave enough to audition for one of the duets in the show.  Here's a video of him singing on La Fiesta de Las Posadas.  You will see that his ventriloquist act is coming along nicely.  (Seriously, how does he sing all of those words without moving his lips?  Amazing!)

So cute! Good job Harrison!
That third soloist has such an awesome haircut. I'm still trying to figure out if that is on purpose or not.

Way to go Harrison!! He is proof that these kids are growing up so fast, glad to see he is carrying on the Maxwell/Lee music gene.

No way, Allyn! That IS a crazy coincidence. Were you all singing "December Nights, December Lights" for the past month, too? The kids started singing it and Miles yelled, "Sember Yights!" Did you also do a sweet flashlight show for "Holiday Lights"?

Muy bien! I think I'll go watch it again!
