Scott came home with a fancy, shmancy new camera a couple of weeks ago and we've been waiting for the perfect moment to break it in. Our moment arrived.
Last night was our church's Christmas pageant. Libbey was an angel. A bright, beautiful angel, adorned in a flowing white robe, gossamer wings, and a sparkling silver halo. You would have thought the child was making her Broadway debut the way I fervently snapped 50 pictures in a span of about 3 and one half minutes. (An easy accomplishment because of the new camera--I felt like a member of the paparazzi, wildly clicking away.) Scott, sitting next to me, steadily held the camcorder, zooming in and out on our gorgeous angel's face.
The grand finale of the performance was a rocking rendition of Joy to the World, complete with hand and arm motions and a thumping bass line. I captured all of this on camera, live and in action, with every intention of showcasing our little star's big night on stage...er, pulpit. Perfect blog fodder for the holidays, right? And seriously y'all...she was adorable...throwing her arms in the air, singing about Jesus, smiling for the audience, acting a bit nervous, and just being her precious self.
Please allow me to share a picture from last night, as I was a very proud mama:
New camera+not reading instructions=the deletion of all 57 photos.
I'm still not over it. It's gonna take some time. Please bear with me.
I did manage to get a picture of her last evening...after the halo and wings had been stored away until next year. She still looks pretty angelic, I have to say. I love her more than my own life.
