Oh Christmas Tree...........

 
In our family when one sings or hears the song Oh Christmas Tree it beings back happy memories. When one niece who is now 21, was about 6 she was the star of the Christmas music show. She was the Christmas tree and was doing a solo of the song.
picture this, a cute little 6 year old wearing a hulahoop type costume tree shape with flashing holiday lights and Christmas balls hanging from it.
got the picture? cute!
 
so she gets up on stage and the teacher starts the music...........Oh Christmas tree.........and the music stops.
the teacher steps up and fixes it and starts again so again Kayla starts singing with the taped music, Oh Christmas tree...........
stops again.
 
after about the fourth time, Kayla was getting anxious to get this thing done so she belts out without the music OH CHRISTMAS TREE OH CHRISTMAS TREE............and SCREAMS  out the song. well the audience was in an uproar of laughter and she was the star of the whole show. we were crying we were laughing so hard. it was priceless........
 
so we have this memory of Christmas trees..................and Kayla............
every time I hear this song or see a tree this happy funny memory comes back............
this is what is great about life.........
she had the ability even at 6 to know how to "solve the problem" and get er done! LOL

  2. What a cute story about Kayla. I hope she can still laugh about it too and realize she was a problem solver at such a young age.
