Anya’s Hannukah Party

Yesterday Anya’s class had a party for Hannukah, and the parents were invited to attend. There were cookies and latkes which the kids helped make, and they put on a little performance of some Hannukah songs. Anya has been singing the songs (loudly and repeatedly) to us for the last two weeks, but the poor kid is still so shy around strangers and in big groups that she wasn’t too eager to sing along with all of the parents watching. I have about 6 minutes of video of her sitting in her chair smiling quietly, but here’s a bit of her participating:

What present did Anya get from the grab bag?

A DORA book!!!  And not just any book – it’s the one WE brought in!

Editor’s note – Lex would like to remember Anya actually singing the songs, so here’s another short clip:

    Can I say how fabulous you look for having a baby barely a week ago?! Anya looks so happy at school!

    Thanks Erica! To be fair, my belly is well hidden in each of those pictures…

    Anya has been enjoying school very much. I’m happy we picked that program. I miss her when she goes, though.

    I loved her singing! Looks like she had fun, despite being shy. And Erica took the words right out of my mouth. I too think you look fablous!

    Thanks, Kristyn! She loves to sing…constantly.
