First off, I can remember being a kid and being in singing programs and my mom telling me that over all the other kids, she heard my voice. I thought this was some sort of mom lie that they tell you in mom school, but it's TOTALLY TRUE. When Ellie finally stopped standing and looking confused/frightened and started singing, I could recognize her little Muppet voice over all the din.
My other favorite part was during a break between songs she looked at me and screamed "mommy, we made you a present!" Way to spoil the surprise, kid. They did in fact, make us very sweet ornaments with our kiddos faces on them.
She also announced to Tim yesterday morning "I brought you a present! It's pajamas!"
