Growing Up

My sweet big boys had their school Christmas program tonight (rescheduled from Wednesday which was okay since the goatee incident occured then :)). Anyway, they had been talking about it for weeks and singing their songs. It has been so cute! [On a side note: Calvin had a fever last night and I was totally relieved that it was gone this morning and did not come back - he would have been devastated to miss his program!]

So tonight, they had their chance to perform and they were hilarious...neither were into the hand motions at.all. but it was obvious they knew all the words. Patrick was more interested in the slide show playing behind them and Calvin spent the first three songs desperately looking for us (he finally found us and gave us several subtle waves). I was one proud mama watching them up there and laughing at their antics - probably only noticeable to us. They were so happy that a few of their aunts and uncles and my mom were able to come watch!

It's hard to believe they will be in kindergarten next year. All of a sudden I feel like they are growing up so fast. The conversations, the humor, and the understanding is just amazing to me. I love watching them grow and change but it's a little bittersweet, too. I remember like it was yesterday when they were Titus' age.

Anyway, here are a few pictures from the evening (getting them to both smile is still a challenge!):

Kindergarten? That can't be!

They look so handsome- as always:)

That second picture captures their personalities perfectly, I love it!

They look so adorable. I bet they were so cute to watch in the play.

haha! I love the second picture! :)
I'm glad Calvin was able to be a part of their program.
