No, Wait. THIS Is My Favorite.


James is the last one on the right in the front row. He really struggled with getting up on stage this year, but he did it! And he did great. When you see him ducking and weaving, he's trying to avoid the endless onslaught of flash photography. And then, of course, there's his "chokey tie".

James really enjoyed learning to sign Silent Night. He thinks it would be really cool to learn sign language, and he's always trying to sign when he talks to me, and I have to try to guess what he's saying.

In order to help James overcome his stage fright, we told him he didn't have to open his mouth and sing. He could just keep it closed and sign. We're really proud of him for being so courageous in the face of overwhelming fear. He did so great! (You can hear Jeff singing into the camera. So cute!)
