My reason for being in Missouri . . like I need a reason . . is Addie’s pre-school Christmas program. When I came in August for her birthday, I didn’t plan to come again til spring, mostly because of the weather and it’s hard for Vince to carry on when I’m not home . . animals to feed, dogs that don’t sleep half the night, a greenhouse to keep warm and watered but when Nicole mentioned coming for the Christmas program, I started packing. It’s pretty unusual for the weather in Texas and Missouri to be cooperative in December. Between snow in Missouri, ice in Texas and rain in either place, as well as me not wanting to drive in rain or snow, a trip from December to March is pretty “iffy”. But the dates before and after the Christmas program, the weather was perfect, all the way from central Texas to southwest Missouri. It’s been a wonderful trip and I’m so happy I was able to attend Addie’s Christmas program. Chad was off, Nicole’s parents, grandparents and her sister and a friend all drove down for the program so Addie had her own little fan club!
She got all dressed up in her new dress and shoes!
When she first got on stage, she was looking and looking or us and I thought she was about to cry. Then she spotted me and said “There’s my Granny!” She called her teacher over and was sating “I see my Granny!”
She was singing her songs and enjoying the program.
I’m so glad I was able to come make a trip for Chad’s birthday and Addie’s Christmas program.
