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.

Christmas Play

The Christmas play at church was canceled last week because of snow (and no power) and rescheduled for this evening. Livia came and was a part of it, too. She and Amelia were little farmers. The premise of the play was a little girl who is in the toy department at Christmas time and the toys come to life. She explains the story of Jesus' birth to them and when she gets to the shepherds she says they were sort of like farmers. Amelia runs up, grabs Spiderman's hand, and says, "Did someone say farmer?" as the other little farmers also go to the stage. She did a great job and then stood there while there was some more dialogue. She was intrigued, though, by Spiderman's physique - how the suit had stuffing in it in various spots - and she reaches up and squeezes his chest. Yep, my daughter felt up Spiderman in front of the entire church, and it's on DVD for those who couldn't make the play. At least it was funny.

On the way out Santa was sitting in the vestibule handing out bags of candy. Amelia, who on Christmas proclaimed that she was going to thank Santa for all her toys, proceeded to do just that. "Santa" had seen us in Wal-mart where she had been busy pushing the cart all by herself. He asked her about it and her eyes got SO big and he said, "Remember, I am watching you!"
