|It was an extra special day for us, as we were also celebrating Daughter Number 1's 40th BD. I could hardly believe that 40 years had passed since our Christmas baby's birth. She loves to celebrate Christmas more than anyone I know.
|Danica is only 5 years old, yet she is a brilliant reader, and was chosen to read the introductory remarks for the concert.
|She did an excellent job along with her older schoolmate.
|I think she might be looking for us in the audience at this point.
|After the introduction, she joined her classmates for their Christmas around the world parade.
|She is still looking for us, but hasn't seen us yet, even though we were right in front of her at this point.
|After the main production in the auditorium we were all invited back to her classroom for another presentation.
|Danica was beyond excited to see us.
|She jumped up and down and clapped her hands.
|After their performance, the kids could join their parents and indulge in a snack...
|and a hug or two.
|She actually had a quiet moment...
|...and then posed for a picture before we signed her out for the day, and took her out for lunch.
