Stella's Christmas Program and Party

Last Friday Stella had her Christmas program at school.  Things looked promising as the program began...
But quickly went south when the kids playing Mary and Joseph entered the room.  To choose the actress from Stella's class who would play Mary, the teacher drew a name out of a hat.  Stella did not agree with the casting decision, to say the least.  About a week before the program, she began telling her daddy and me that we needed to tell her teachers that she needed to be Mary because she was a good actress.  We tried to explain to her that everyone needs a chance to be the star, but apparently we had not gotten this point across by program day because she dissolved into tears at the sight of Mary and ended up sitting in her teacher's lap and sobbing for that entire portion of the program...
She did bounce back at the end and sang the Santa songs beautifully, but since she never went back to her seat it was hard to get a good picture of her.  After some birthday cake for Jesus in her classroom she was all smiles...
I think she was telling Damon how upset she was over the Mary thing in this one...
She got to decorate a Christmas tree (ice cream cone) with yummy treats...
Her BF Molly sat next to her...





I love this one.  It pretty much sums up Stella's personality at this stage of life...
This is Stella's friend Jacques decorating his tree.  I think he did a fantastic job, don't you?
