Pattycake Pajama Party
Friday night we went to see Miss Pattycake at our church. We've been watching her videos for a while and Hayes loves her so much, but we didn't know how she would do "sitting" (haha!) in the sanctuary and watching someone from a distance. Being still is not her strongest point. I've always been thankful for our church nursery, but this makes me incredibly SUPER thankful that we have a wonderful nursery facility available at church where she is well taken care of while we can go listen and learn. Alyssa, I don't know how y'all do it at your church with all the little ones in there!!
Doing some spinning while she waited...
Getting a little restless b/c Nathan thought she might need to sit down...no luck there!
Finally, here is Miss Pattycake!
Miss Pattycake sang some new songs that we didn't know and Hayes loved clapping for her. She mainly stood out in the aisle and ran back and forth from the front of the aisle then back to our seats 100 times, and I crawled all over the floor the entire time. I tried not to think about the fact that George and Reba were playing the same night in Birmingham as Miss Pattycake. (I did see on another friends' blog what I missed but I'm not thinking about that, or the fact that they will probably never tour again together or come back to Bham together.) Hayes had fun and that's all that matters!
Sidenote: Miss Pattycake is from Birmingham and actually grew up at Dawson and was married there. She's been singing and dancing for little ones for 20 years. Her parents are members still and were there Friday night.
Clapping and cheering for Miss "Pat-Pay"
Her poor puppy did a great job sweeping up the floor of the aisles. He was so dirty!
Playing on the stage afterwards...
The rest of the weekend was fun too. We had a baby shower on Saturday and that night a spend the night party w/Lindsey, Brent, and Baker and watched football. Hayes and Bake Bake played so good together. It gives me hope that she is going to be a really sweet big sister. Saying some prayers for that one!
