Preston's First Grade Christmas Concert

Preston's first grade Christmas concert was tonight and it was so freaking cute! He did so awesome, my little performer!

I dropped him off with his class and his friend, Payton, and then went to find my seat with the fam. 

I really liked the way his music teacher did things this year.  Each class performed their group of songs and then they all did one final song together.  Made it a lot easier to watch and take photos of your child when there were only twenty or so on stage instead of sixty!

I'd gotten a little bit of a sneak peek at home of the concert since Preston has been practicing the songs for a couple of weeks now.  I was ready to see the whole show!

Olivia was very excited waiting for brother to take the stage!  She bounced back and forth between pointing at the stage and calling "brother" and yelling "baby" at the baby sitting across the aisle from us.  She kept telling me "cheese"and then pointing at the baby and lifting my camera.  Sorry sweet girl, we're not taking a photo of a strangers baby.  

Taking the stage!  Oh the excitement!

Preston and his class sang "Up on the Housetop", "Frosty the Snowman", "O' Christmas Tree", and "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth."  It was adorable!  Not going to lie, I'm pretty sure Preston was the best one up there.  I could be biased.  But even Olivia was completely silent his whole performance. She just sat on my lap and watched.  They were that good!

Adding to how much I liked the music teacher, when all was said and done she had the kids pose for a smiling photo, a silly photo, and then one more smiling photo for their parents!  I think it's pretty obvious which photo Preston liked posing for the most.

Two classes later, Preston took the stage again.  This time to sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" with the whole first grade!

Silly boy!

The three amigos!  Preston and his best buddies from his class!

Preston was so excited when he saw that Mason had come!  My two favorite boys!

I can't even tell you how much work it was to get all of these photos.  Preston just wanted to race around and wanted nothing to do with me or taking photos or standing still.  

His fan club!  Thanks for coming guys! 

My little family.

Can we talk about two things in these photos?  One Preston is like actually almost as tall as me.  I mean really just look.  Two does Olivia look like a full blown toddler to anyone else?  I mean really.  So basically when the heck did our kids get so big?

Looks like Christmas really is coming!
