One of our favorite signs of the Christmas season is the Christmas music we hear everywhere. We have been singing Christmas carols each night with our girls since November to gear up for the caroling. Meilani's Preschool Sunday School class performed at our church the first Sunday in December. She diligently practiced the songs for weeks.
Meilani has become increasingly brave about singing on the stage. Her first year she was struck with stage fright and just stared at the people. The second year she eeked out a few words after much prompting from mama. This year, she led the line for her class and belted out the words for "Joy to the World," "Silent Night" and "While by My Sheep" (complete with the Baa-baa from the sheep).
In her mothering way, Meilani also showed great concern for helping her friend Mia get on stage with her own paper sheep. It was very sweet and they both got in some baa-baa-baas just in time. We're all ready for Christmas caroling on Christmas Eve with the family.
