Hugh's school Christmas concert - turn your volume down!

Last night we had the end of year school Christmas concert. Hugh has had a great year and he was so excited. Nervous excitement. Thank goodness the torrential rain of the night before was nowhere in sight.
Here is Hugh with his two best buddies. Not a great shot with the sun glaring in their faces, but seven year old boys who are highly excited are not about to pander to an annoying mothers photographic demands LOL! I took what I could get.

A typical shot of Hugh....frowning just like his Pa!! Also impatient for his grade's turn. And my little chonka (last day of being three - boo hoo) was absorbed by all the singing.
And yes I was there! Tried to get Den to take a photo, but like I said, the sun made photos tough to take.

This video comes with a warning....turn it down! LOL! But I had to include it as Hugh was so proud and smiley giving me a knowing look and holding up a pudding (read below).
I also wanted to share the words - which you can't hear - with my overseas friends. So I shall write them down for you:
"Christmas where the gum tress grow there is no frost and there is no snow. Christmas in Australia's hot, cold and frosty is what its not. When the bloom of the Jackaranda tree is here Christmas time is near. From England came our Christmas fare they even said what Santa should wear. But here downunder for summers cool, Santa should dip in a swimming pool"

You know how much I love, love, love it when you share a video with audio. Let me amend that...
Thanks for the words!

Was that a very pregnant Santa I saw?

That's a fantastic shot of Hugh & the boys. I thought our grade did a fantastic job with their song! TFS the video.
