Scawee Vampiwe


We bought this school cape for Anna more than a year earlier when we'd taken the then 10-month old Anna with us to London. Anna Lynn loved this little English cape so much. She played Harry Potter in it quite a lot. But most of all, she just had to be a vampire for her third Halloween. Katie was just born that summer (July 0f 2001) and wasn't yet into the Halloween thing. So Anna was trick-or-treating with her older brother and sister. She loved everything about the costume - the white face, the slicked back hair, the cool costume - except for one thing: the vampire teeth. The teeth were made for a kid at least twice her size. Consequently, she could hardly close her mouth around the things. And with all of the candy on Halloween to make her hungry, she was droolin' all over her adorable 3-yr old self.

Oooh! So scary! =^)

Christmas Plays are Everywhere

With as many kids in school programs as we have, it seemed like there was at least two or three plays, choir concerts, or activites to do every week of the Christmas season. The picture above shows Emily in her role in the Christmas play as the narrator of the scene from "The Christmas Story" where the kids do their double-dog dare and tongue on the light pole scene. I'm sorry for the blurry picture, but I forgot how huge the new auditorium is and that I'd have to zoom half a mile to get fairly close up on Emily. She did great!

Here's a picture of Dylan and Connor goofin' at the Candlelight Holiday Show that the choir was invited to perform at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville. They got to perform alongside the university choir. Working with the older kids really seemed to bring out the best in Dylan and his choirmates because they sounded awesome!

Next, I'll post pictures of the little kids and their exploits at all of their holiday shows.
