Last night was Cordelia's Thanksgiving play. The weeks leading up to the play led to more than a little investigation on my part. Eric and I wanted to make sure that the play didn't go against our vegan values. Thankfully the play was about a little girl who didn't like turkey, we thought maybe it was because she was vegan... Anyway, there was a bunch of food and Cordelia played bread.
For weeks she has been practicing her songs. Last night, before the play, she practiced her bow. On the drive over she asked if the whole crowd was coming for her. I told her that we were there to see her and her grandparents would be too, but the rest of the people were there for their own kids. Cordelia's reply, "Yes, but it will also be a little bit of the Cordy show too."
When we arrived we dropped the girl off to put on her costume, something she appropriately described as a bread necklace, and we scouted out our seats. We were ready for the show to start!

Cordelia in her first role ever, bread.
Singing her heart out, she later told me she did her very best. For the record, her very best included many improved twirling solos and hugging her friends and making them laugh.

Oh, and then there was this....
She made a fashionable exit at the end of the play, waving like a queen.
I think we may need to sign this girl up for some drama classes as she already has the bug.
