Lydia's New Year Program

Lydia did a great job yesterday at her Russian kindergarten program.  For part of it, she was a circus horse, and for part she had the honor of being "Sneguochka," the snow princess.  She loves performing, and it was so fun to watch her and the other kids.

Here's Birdie and our neighbor before the program started.  (I had woken Birdie up from her nap to go, and she wasn't too much in the mood for smiling!)
 Some of the other ladies urged me to go get Elliot's picture taken with the tree, since it's his first New Year celebration.
 Finally a cute smile & pose from Birdie!
 The kids lined up to enter the music hall:
And the videos...
