Lollipop Kids

As a Christmas gift for the whole family, Micah's Mom purchased tickets for us all to see the Wizard of Oz play / musical. Since the kids hadn't really heard of Wizard of Oz before, I decided to rent the movie ahead of time so they could learn about it. They absolutely loved it and watched it over and over again before the play. Haylie's favorite part was definitely whenever Glenda the good witch showed up. Haylie loves princesses and thought Glenda was so beautiful.

James on the other hand, had two favorite parts. His second favorite part was the Lollipop Kids - you know "We represent, the Lollipop kids (guild), the Lollipop kids (guild), the Lollipop kids (guild) and in the name of the Lollipop kids (guild), we wish to welcome you to munchkin land."

According to him, his first favorite part was the wicked witch, mostly when the witch melted. And when we were watching the play in the tiny little Woodland opera house and the witch began to melt, James knew just what to do... he shouted out: "Ding dong the witch is dead." Which made the entire audience laugh. We also knew a few people in the play and talked to them after. They said everyone backstage heard it, they were laughing and the wicked witch was all excited that someone was so into the play! :)
