Today was quite a busy day. With the treat of a stomach virus possibly stopping all things in motion, we managed to get through it.
I had my Mom's Group Christmas brunch at the Allerton's Mansion in town. It was lovely as ever with the grounds all covered in a perfect white blanket and statues looking as though they were slumbering in the snow. The fellowship and meal was very sweet and a bit chilly but so nice to end the first semester in a tranquil, easy morning.
This evening the boys had a their school program. Reagan's class was cows and Mason's class was sweet little men ( I think!) . Reagan had a line to memorize and lots of songs to sing. He still doesn't understand that his little line was funny and that people were not laughing at him in a bad way. How does one explain that? 4 of his 11 classmates were out sick tonight so their herd was quite small.
Mason was so nervous before he had to 'preform' - it was quite cute. He was confused about the fake baby Jesus lying in a basket. As soon as I went to get him, he confided to me that it was all wrong. The baby was supposed to be real and in a manger with straw and hay, not a basket.
It went really well and was very cute.
If you would like to see them perform, you can see Reagan here and Mason here. I do warn you though...I did not inherit my mother's ability to video tape well. Motion sickness may occur. Watch at your own risk.
