Tonight we had the grandparents over for a Talent Show. We also invited an Aunt, Uncle, and cousins. I didn't get many good pictures, and it takes too long to load a video on here, but here is a recap:
We started the night with Primus and Secundus singing Fifty Nifty United States. Their brother was supposed to sing with them, but he was more interested in running around and occasionally hitting his sister.
Next was Secundus' puppet show. This girl LOVES to do puppet shows. Any time she has a craft that vaguely resembles a puppet, she insists on making up a (long and rambling) story and doing a show for us. For this Talent Show I printed out some pictures for Goldilocks and the 3 Bears and she did a great job performing it.
Then Primus showed off some of the moves they do in ballet class for warm up. She's not very good at them yet or very graceful, but it was awfully cute!
For the girls' concluding performance, they sung a song they learned at Cherubs (mommy-and-me music class). It goes, "Knock, knock. Trick or Treat. Who are you? I'm a ... I'm a little..." Each time you sing it, you insert another Halloween costume name. So they grabbed several hats out of their dress up box and took turns showing off a verse.
I'm so glad we were able to convince their cousins to participate, too. Their 2 older cousins danced to the "Cha Cha Slide."
And finally their little 3 year old cousin danced to Owl City's "Fireflies." She must have gotten stage fright cause she didn't do as many cute dance moves for performance as she did during rehearsal. But that was ok because she is just adorable no matter what she does!
We ended the evening with yummy slightly undercooked brownies while the kids ran wild in the dark backyard and Primus convinced everyone to buy stuff for her dance recital fundraiser. It was a great time!
