Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

After many weeks, they saw land.

Amelia's preschool had a little Thanksgiving production for the parents this morning. The school meets in the Episcopal Church so they used the sanctuary. The children wore little vests made from brown paper bags which they painted. She took her vest off partway through but I think it was because she was having trouble doing the hand motions to the songs with the vest on. They also had made Indian head bands with feathers. There were a few songs and some speaking parts. Amelia was the second person during the speaking part and she held up a picture and then said, "After many weeks, they saw land." She did really well, too.

During Ten Little Indians, however, she decided to count how many people came to see her. She knew Nana and I were coming, but Daddy was a big surprise and she just couldn't get over him being there, she was so excited. Larry and Shirley from across the street came, too. Then she decided she had to come down and "give Mama a hug" which was too sweet to be mad about. Plus she ran right back up to the stage. One little boy just sat on the stage the entire time and wouldn't participate, so I guess I can't worry about Amelia being a little distracted.

Afterwards they had a nice little lunch for us. The children brought ingredients for vegetable soup and one of the other parents made cornbread. They also had popcorn and we all sat and enjoyed a meal on cute placemats the children had made.
