Lining up for the show!!
Quick note about this picture: While I am an admitted holiday outfit queen when it comes to dressing Emerson this time of year, you will notice she has on one outfit in this picture and another in the pictures below. One of Emerson's teachers mistakenly changed her out of the outfit she had been in and put this dress on her before the show, thinking I had brought it in for her to wear. Realizing she had put another child's dress on Emerson, she had to do a quick change right before they came upstairs back into the outfit Emerson had on all day. I thought it was too funny...obviously bringing two outfits is something I would TOTALLY do, but I wasn't the culprit this time!!
Miss Gail welcomes the crowd!!

Ready to sing!!
Of course, Emerson and Aurora would be right next to one another!
One of the new additions to the show this year was to have every child speak into the microphone (in front of the entire audience) and tell everyone one thing they want Santa to bring them. I am, by-all-means, not a public speaker, so I was pretty impressed that three, four, and five-year-olds had the courage to do this. For the most part, all of them did a great job. Emerson's response was a "Barbie Doll House" (which she later changed to just a doll house). We'll see if Santa heard her request!!
