Holiday Spirit

Gordon sang with the choir in the Annual Creche Festival last weekend.

Hal enjoyed it quite a bit.

During each song, he would sometimes play with toys, and sometimes watch and listen to the singing, totally into it.

The best part, though, was at the end of each song, the audience would applaud, and Hal would grab his little Lace-Up Teddy Bear toy, and hold it up high, sometimes like a lighter at a concert (one-handed), other times like Lloyd Dobler on Say Anything (two-handed).

Every time! He would hold it constant throughout the applause, and only lower it when the room got quiet again. Sometimes he'd be playing and distracted when a song ended, and watching him scramble like crazy to find the toy and stand up quickly was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time.
