Looking Back: How Santa Got His Job. . .

******** ******** ********
This is one in a series of posts that will look back at things that happened during the Fall 2010 semester when life got too busy to post.

******** ******** ********

Each grade at the girl's school does a "program" each year. The third grade is always in charge of the Christmas program, so Gracie started practicing her Christmas songs around October. By the time December rolled around, she was ready!

This year's play followed a teacher and her class learning about holiday traditions, including reading through the book, "How Santa Got His Job" by Steven Krensky. Gracie's class participated in the scene where Santa becomes a chef at a diner and starts to get his belly.

Gracie and her classmates were supposed to look like kids dressing up, so we borrowed my sister's high school prom dress for Gracie. With that dress and stage makeup, she sure looked grown up!

Once again, Gracie played handchimes in her program - she's getting to be a pro!

It was a very, very cute show. One of my favorite numbers was this one - Someone's in the Chimney:

What stars we have!
