Cole had his first ever school play and it was so so sweet!!! he played an Angel in the Nativity and recited a sweet little song....It melted my heart as anything with him involved does.....I am so blessed to be a Mom and so blessed to share in these moments that take my breath away....

my heart grows bigger with each new experience with Cole......

Awww... he is so sweet looking. We had our first Christmas Program this year, too. Sadly, the US is getting way too "politically correct" and I doubt any public school would be allowed to show the Nativity Scene. They seem to have forgotten what the reason for this holiday is... Jesus was born!

Your ice skating mice and bird are adorable!

Diana Evans said...

Happy holidays!!!!

The mice on ice are just too cute also. Were the kitties chasing them? What a thrill to attend Cole's first play. I was never able to hold my tears back when attending these for my son. They always brought happy tears to my eyes. He is getting way too big!!
Hugs, Diane
