Senior Home Christmas Performance and Balboa Island Lights

On December 7th, our sailing group performed at a senior home with ocean views.

Kate started the performance by playing “Jingle Bells” on the flute. We all sang “Jingle Bells” after that. Next, Kasen, Asher, and Mr. Terry sang “We Three Kings.”

After that, I played  “Joy to the World” on the piano. Next, my sisters and their friends sang “Away In a Manger” while I accompanied them on piano.

There were more songs and then we sang “Rudolph” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” While we were singing, some of the girls walked around handing out cookies. We were each allowed to have two.

We took some photos outside and then went to have lunch at Fashion Island.

In Barnes & Noble, we had a lightsaber fight. I won most of the time. Even with one lightsaber against Asher and Griffin, I won. We fought where they used toy guns, and I still used a lightsaber. They won by Asher distracting while Griffin snuck up and shot me.

After that, we went to look at the lights on Balboa Island.

There was one lady who put up over 3,500 teddy bears.

We ran ahead of the parents and played tag. Eventually, it turned into a game called Infection. In the last game, I survived the longest along with Griffin. What I didn’t know, was that Sarah had survived, too. She had been hiding the whole time!

 

Overall, it was a fun day!

  1. Another great post! I’m sure all of the residents at the Senior Home enjoyed your performances. Grandma and I went to PawPaw’s Christmas Program last night at his Senior Home and they all enjoyed it very much. I especially liked your “Joy to The World” piano performance – I’m sure the Senior residents also thought it was great. Looks like you also had a fun day enjoying the Christmas lights / decorations on Balboa Island, etc. You probably will never get to see 3500 Teddy Bears again.
