OLS talent show 2012

saturday night came with a quickness as the Golden Warrior Awards Talent Show was upon us. the show started at 6:30pm inside the parish hall. it was mentioned that this year had the most involvement of students counting at over 40 acts. we arrived early and snagged the closest seats we could find. there was a red carpet, faux golden globe decorations, lights, music, and a whollatta glitter. abby along with her friends lined up by the side of the room as everything was being organized. they practiced their cheers a few times while waiting as jay, lyla, jemma, lola, pawpaw, and i sat in our seats waiting for the show to begin. here are some pics...abby's group, "the cheergartners" were the second act on stage. they came out and the lights seemed to shine so bright on them. they started out with the dynamite cheer which led into the rowdy cheer then finalizing their routine with a "go warriors!" it was awesome. the crowd laughed as they rotated their pom pom held hips, chanting, "tick, tick, tick, tick, BOOM, dynamite...BOOM, dynamite" as they jumped in the air. they did fantastic and we couldn't have been more proud of them. here are some pics...after each act, the kids received their very own golden warrior award certificate with this lovely quote on it,

"Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God." -Leo Buscaglia

we're so proud of you, abby. to be honest, momma's just happy you had enough courage to even go up on stage. job well done, and we hope you use your many talents to the best of your ability. love you, sweet girl. xoxo
