Lulu Opens For Santa

For the second year in a row my
Little Lulu
opened the Christmas lighting ceremony for
On Broadway 
in downtown west Green Bay.
She sang about 6 or 7 songs solo
and then Santa came on stage
to join the fun.

She did a fantastic job.
(Much better than Nana did on the picture taking).

I am working outside getting my lights up
while we have sunshine.
It is only 16 degrees here by the bay
this morning-
but supposed to go up to 35 degrees today.
A real heat wave, folks!

Have an awesome Sunday
(am I too old to say awesome)

I'll be back in a day or so!

Sylvia said...

ohhhhhhh 16 degrees, that's COLD !
Congrats to Lulu, I know it was beautiful.
I may not get to decorate this year, but I am looking forward to seeing everyone's decor.

Mimi said...

How exciting for Lulu! Most of my proud moment pictures aren't the greatest because I'm too busy bawling my head off! Ha! Girlfriend, (am I too old to say "girlfriend"?) you have way more ambition than I do on this cold, frosty morning. I can't wait to see the results!

Adam said...

Can Santa sing too?

Junkchiccottage said...

So happy that Lulu was able to use her beautiful voice to sing for the opening. Sooooo sweet.

Simply LKJ said...

Wow, that is impressive for a girl her age. I loved to sing growing up too. 16? Ha! I put our lights out yesterday because it was 70!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Wow, 6 or 7 songs for Lulu, that's great! I wish I could hear her sing. I can't believe it was 16 degrees there this morning........that's sooooo cold. Have a fun time putting up your lights. I might decorate inside for Christmas today. : )

Enjoy your Sunday, Diana.

love, ~Sheri

Diane said...

How wonderful! You must be beaming with great pride! Because I am smiling just knowing your the joy you experience through pretty Lulu. Hope you've got those long johns on under your clothes putting up your lights!

Maureen Wyatt said...

Singing that many songs solo is a very big job for a little girl. Well done!

Sarah said...

You are out in 16 degrees? AWESOME! I'll say it! '-)
Would love to hear Lulu sing.

I know you are so proud of Lulu. Hope you have some hot tea or cider to enjoy when you come in from those frigid temps!

Brrrrrrr! Stay warm, Diana!

Linda said...

Never too old to say awesome! Brave woman for putting out lights....I could, it's 'nice' enough here, but I'm passing this year. wow, it's great that Lulu has retained the honor of opening for Santa, be proud, very proud.

Heaven's Walk said...

That's wonderful that little Lulu shares her talent. Such an honor for a child so young! Be careful putting up lights, Diana. It's really cold where you live. We've had temps in the upper 70's this past week. Kinda weird for us. xo ♥

Kim said...

Fabulous! I love to hear about the kids getting showcased, especially during the holidays. What a thrill!! I hate to tell you this, but it's 65 degrees here today. It's a little unnerving, but I'm still not willing to trade with you! ;) xo

Gypsy Heart said...

That is simply outstanding! She's full of talent and I'm so glad she had this opportunity. Hope you're being careful with your outside decorating! It's been very cold and rainy here for days...I'm over it!


Susie said...

Diana, No you are totally still young enough to say awesome. LOL. You kill me girl. I would have loved hearing Lulu sing. Hey, I am afraid 30 degrees is going to start looking good. Today is cloudy once again...but it's a brighter cloudy LOL. I did some outdoor décor yesterday also. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

Barbara said...

Boy, that Lulu is talent. And yes, we can be awesome at our age.

Barb @ Bella Vista said...

Hi Diana, I know you are so proud of Lulu.

Stay warm with those temps.....mercy!

Hugs, Barb

Stephen Andrew said...

Usually our weather is so much more similar! It's been so warm here! Congratulations to her!

Chatty Crone said...

Your granddaughter is really special being able to do that at such a young age and beautiful too! Hope you got your lights up - we did today - but it was much warmer here.

Missy George said...

Good for her...You have a very talented family..You're never too old to say "awesome" long as you're not to old to feel it!!! We are in the 40's..Very raw today..Have a good evening Diana..

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Congratulation to Lulu, I know she did an outstanding job. I am freezing at 50 and look like I am heading off to Alaska LOL
Have a great week Diana and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Sonny G said...

go Miss LULU ~!!!
almost don't wanna say it was 68 this afternoon..
stay warm..

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

How cool is that? You must be so proud!!! My husband puts up lights at the latest the day after Thanksgiving in order to beat the Chicago cold. This year he put them up a week even earlier than that, although we don't dare turn them on until after Thanksgiving:)

Kathy said...

Wow!! That is fantastic. I know you are a proud grandma. Enjoy your heat wave. I'll just suffer in the 60 degree temperatures we have here. (I shouldn't brag. Those temperatures you are having will be here all too soon.)

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

How wonderful for LuLu and for all of you to watch her! I thought 37 degrees was too cold...16?! yuck! No, you are not too old to say
awesome :-0

A Joyful Cottage said...

Bless Lulu's heart and her proud nana's heart, too. Santa was lucky to share the stage with that girl. :) 35 degrees sounds good. It got up to a whopping 19 degrees here today. We should have temps in the 40's later this week. Go ahead and say "awesome". You've earned it girl. xo

Rose L said...

I bet she sounded lovely! You should have recorded to share with us!

cynthia lee designs said...

It's been raining here for 2 days and it is cold rain with wind. Congrats to Lulu for opening for Santa...I bet she was really excited.

Consider It All Joy said...

If your Lulu is the opener for Santa - you are NEVER too old to say AWESOME!!! Enjoy your week! Blessings, Cindy xoxo

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Wow you must be so proud! How special and what a memorable part of her life. I hope you got a video of her singing! We're back home now and it's cold but no snow which I'm grateful for.

Karen@Southern Gal Meets Midwest said...

That's So AWESOME. Congrats Nana!! You must be very proud of her.
Have a great week!!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Congrats, Lulu! I bet she has an amazing voice! 16 degrees??? Wow! We were just hoping to get below 60 so it would feel more "winter like." Hee hee! But for once, we don't have the a/c on (or the heat) so I can't complain.

Debbie said...

What a talented young lady Lulu is, Diana! Your heart must just burst with pride.
You sure have determination getting those lights up for the Christmas season! brrrrrrrr! Good for you!
Have a wonderful week.
Love to you.
