Hark the Herald....

I thought I would share one of the highlights of our Christmas season.  During one of the first weeks of December I received this email below from Davis' preschool teacher. Don't worry- strep isn't the highlight (far from it), but the second to last sentence is what is noteworthy for this post...
To all parents,

Please note that several children have been ill with deep coughs, runny noses, etc... throughout the school. We have also had several children confirm STREP. This is not showing up as a sore throat but rather as runny noses and stomach aches, plus just general "not being their normal self" actions by the children.

If your child has a deep cough, or ongoing runny nose, please take the time to ask your Doctor or Nurse for a STREP test to be safe.  With the holidays upon us, we desire everybody to be happy and healthy!

Many blessings and thanks for all you do. And special congratulations to DAVIS GORMAN for teaching the class HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING.

We are learning all sorts of Christmas songs, stories and crafts this year!

Have a great weekend!

I thought hmmm... I didn't know he knew that song! So while on the phone with my sister, I had him sing it to us.  Much to my surprise he sang most of it correctly then at the end he said "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown".

Totally cracked me up! My sister, Jennifer said "He watches too much TV!" And I said, "no he reads too many books!"

Can you tell what book he loved to read before bedtime?  His Charlie Brown press-n-hear book which has the Charlie Brown version of "Hark the Herald" on it!  I was laughing so hard I almost cried! I love that kid!

Throughout the holiday season Davis sang the song- I finally got it on tape.  I must admit it's not one of his best performances but when the camera is rolling- I take what I can get!  Oh, and I totally didn't notice until after the fact that he had on his Charlie Brown shirt that Gigi bought him- pure coincidence.  Enjoy!
