Way Back When-esday

I had planned on sharing some of my favorite pics of the kids with Santa from years past but I came across these and couldn't resist. As much as I love to share pictures of my adorable children...this week I had to share some pics of Emma's debut Christmas performance on a stage. And I must admit...they are not too adorable! She cried throughout the show and for about an hour after the show as well. Her school put on a beautiful Christmas program telling the story of Jesus's birth and Emma was a duck. Even at 3 she knew what was going on and there were no ducks in the manger. She wanted to be an angel like the 4 year olds. I'll never forget that day. My whole family, mom, dad, brother, sister in-law, their kids, my sister and brother in-law all came to see Emma in her very first program...and she cried like she's never cried before!
If you know my Emma would never believe she had such stage fright! She loves to get on a stage. She sings, dances, and loves to perform! She was such a shining star at her preschool end of the year program last year. It's so funny to look back and remember those times. It just goes to show you...that you never know what will happen with kids.
I'm looking forward to Max's Christmas program tomorrow night. I'm hoping that the only tears shed will be from this proud Mommy!

Christmas program 2007-Emma with her teacher after the show and still crying!
This is a terrible picture(not sure if I knew how to zoom), Emma is the 3rd from the left...her teacher was trying to console her.

Play along with Cheryl at's so much fun to reminisce!

  1. Oh Melissa, bless her little heart! Isn't it funny to see how very differently our little ones respond in public?

    She's a doll!

    Thank you so much for playing along with Way Back When-esday!
