Singing and Dancing for The Residents


Let's all sing!

"Oh the weather outside is frightful,
and the fire is so delightful...
And since there's no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"


Well, it's only flickering snow, but it is bitter cold.



Gracie says she's not moving no way... no how!

And I say...  I want to hibernate. 
Wake me sometime mid-March please.  

But wait-I don't want to miss the children at the nursing home, singing and dancing for the residents.


That's my girl, right up front.  She was being shy and not wanting to dance... until she saw Grammy and Pop Pop walk in.  Then she was all smiles.  


I whispered in her ear, and told her 
I had a surprise for her if she danced nice.   


And  when she was done dancing we gave her a "hello kitty" watch from a happy meal and $2 to get an ice cream.


She was happy.


It was worth going out in the storm!


We were sitting in back of the dancers/singers but I loved capturing the faces of the nursing home residents.  Rissie is the one on the far left directly in front of us.    


This is Christmas!!  And it warms my heart.
