Madden and Skylar's Holiday Performances

We had a holiday filled day last week when we had Skylar and Madden’s Holiday Performances on the same day.  We started the morning off at Madden’s Performance and class party.  We had been practicing songs with both kids for weeks now, and Madden’s favorite to sing was Rudolph. He always wanted to sing it and would sometimes get mad when others sang the song, because he wanted to be the only one singing.  Funny thing was that Rudolph wasn’t even a song that was a part of Madden’s performance, but that didn’t seem to matter.




Madden arrived at the church with a huge smile on his face and looking ready to perform.


Jake and I were laughing because Madden seemed to be more into the hand movements and shaking the bells then the actually singing.  We really didn’t see many words coming out of him.  He kind of bombed “Away in the Manager” when it came to the singing (practicing Rudolph way too much), but had the perfect hand motions for the entire song.  In the end all the kids from Room 2 did a fantastic job.  We didn’t have any criers and Madden’s performance was of course the best one of the group.

After the performance all the parents and kids went back to the classroom for the holiday party.  It was so cute being in Madden’s element and seeing him in his classroom.  A couple moms told me that they would hear Madden’s name a lot from their kids which really made me happy knowing that he is interacting with a lot of his class.  He speaks the most about his friends Carter and Enzo which whom he spent most of his time with during the party.  It was a really fun morning and definitely a highlight of the holiday season for it.




Next came Skylar’s time to shine.  Hers was held in the evening so my Mom was able to come down to join us.  Nana bought Skylar the perfect dress for performance and even took her to get her hair done for the big show.  We were lucky enough to arrive in time for front row seats.  




Skylar was so excited to be with all her classmates and it was so fun seeing them all dressed up.

The kids sang five song and Skylar was so excited because she was one of the four kids in her class who was chosen to shake the bells during jingle bells.  When the kids sang Rudolph (highlight of the night for Madden), they put on their adorable Rudolph hats as a surprise for all the parents.  Madden was definitely his sisters biggest cheerleader during the whole performance.

It was such a special day for us and we both couldn’t of been more proud of both Skylar and Madden.  They both sung their hearts out and definitely made memorable moments for us this holiday season.

  1. These photos bring back so many memories for Paul and I of when Jake was in holiday programs. Both Madden and Skylar look so happy. And Madden looked like he was having a great time. We were glad Skylar got to be in the front. Merry Christmas, Skylar and Madden!
