We are taking a break from my beautiful black-and-white family pictures to bring you a retro-ohamanda picture. This is my first grade Christmas play at school. I’m sorry it’s so blurry. But I love this picture. All the faces are so familiar to me. I wish I could remember all their names. Let’s see…
The teacher with her back to us wearing the tan dress? My favorite teacher of all time, Mrs. Weinberg.
The first little boy on the left with the outstanding bowl cut? Jeremy O’Connell
The adorable girl dressed as a gift and wearing a giant bow in her hair? ME! (I have very vivid memories of this night. I can remember holding my lines in my hand. It was just a scrap of paper, only big enough for my one line. And I’m pretty sure the wrapping paper was a Disney character.)
The little boy next to me dressed in white with an “I” on his shirt? Chris Luke (incidentally he asked me to dance at our 8th grade dance. I said no. Sorry, Chris. Oh, and he’s dressed as icicle, in case you were wondering.)
And there is Sam Sneed in the blue robe and crown on his head. I think he was one of the 3 Wise Men.
Are you impressed? I’m pretty sure we were doing the Christmas Alphabet. And yeah, I’m pretty sure we called it Christmas back then. Speaking of Christmas, don’t forget about my spectacular oh! ho! ho! giveaway this week–it ends on Friday and there will be FIVE winners!
