I'm Gonna Miss This...



So this past Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, my niece, Kennedy, spent time with our family. We are very fortunate to live close enough for Kennedy to visit and spend the night often. I have always been close to Kennedy and love to have her spend time with the boys.
So Monday night her and the boys wrote a Christmas play that they wanted to preform for the family on Christmas day. They each had their own roles with lines, songs with solos and props. I had so much fun watching them practice for 3 days and then put on the performance of their (short) lives! This reminded me of when I was their age. Me, my sister & cousins would put on talent shows, plays, sing-a-longs...anything that our parents would watch, through out the entire year! I was so proud of them, as was the rest of the family!
It was a very cute play entitled "The Night Before Christmas" which was about 2 boys going to bed on Christmas Eve and being thankful for the presents that Santa and his elf brought! The played ended with a family sing-a-long and dancing! Everyone had so much fun and I am really going to miss it when they feel that they are too old to have fun like this! Kennedy is 11 yrs old and I am very thankful that she still comes over and hangs out with an 8 yr old and 7 yr old. I hope that next year they will preform for us again!
So I am going miss these fun times when they use their imagination and beyond...
I can only hope and pray that they use it as often as they want!
