First Talent Show

On Saturday our ward primary hosted a talent show for the kids. I asked Liv and Gary if they'd like to draw a picture or sing a song... Liv perked up right then and said, "Sing a song!" I was hesitant since Liv is so shy in nature, but I remembered feeling the same way just before her preschool Christmas program. But once they got started singing she was the star, so I knew I needed to back her up, otherwise I'd just be holding her back. So I started listing songs, ones that they know well so they wouldn't forget the words once they were up there in front of all those people (not actually a lot, but enough to intimidate any little tike). The two of them decided upon the classic "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." As you can see, they were a little overwhelmed, but I was still so proud of them for what they had accomplished... plus, they were just beaming with pride in themselves, and that's what mattered the most!

They were adorable! Isn't it great that we have video cameras to capture all these moments with our children? Our grandparents weren't that lucky years ago!
