Last night Annie’s school choir put on a performance of A Christmas Carol. I had no idea what to expect from a group of 50 first through fifth graders, but I was blown away not only by how ambitious the play was, but by how well the kids pulled it off. Such a talented little group of singers and actors! Annabel was the Ghost of Christmas future and she did a fabulous job helping Scrooge see the error of his ways. She also really, really liked her costume, a black cloak, because, “I look scary, but also mysterious and pretty.”

James was totally captivated by the entire performance, which was surprising, but he especially loved the post-show snacks.
