Here comes Santa Claus – and Honey Boo Boo!
Alana Thompson, arguably the hottest reality sensation of the year (hey, she even made Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating People list), is still just a regular 7-year-old girl at heart, especially around the holidays.
On Tuesday, she enthusiastically performed at her school’s Christmas show. Putting aside the glitz wear she dons for beauty pageants, Honey Boo Boo and several of her classmates wore black leotards and red tutus for a ballet number. The evening also featured songs and an appearance from St. Nick himself.
Proud mom June Shannon was on hand to capture the moment, and she posted the photos to Alana’s official Facebook fan page.
“Alana in her school program tonight she done soo good,” June captioned one pic. (Yes, her posts are written the way she talks. Get over it.)
June, boyfriend Mike “Sugar Bear,” Alana and her three big sisters have been busy playing Santa themselves. Since Thanksgiving, they’ve been welcoming visitors every night to their outdoor holiday display, asking only that they bring a new toy or canned food. The donations are earmarked for Wilco Luvs Kids, a charity benefiting needy families in their rural Georgia county.
If you don’t live close enough to drop by, you can also send contributions for the charity to Honey Boo Boo and her family at P.O. Box 72, McIntyre, GA 31054. You may be lucky enough to see your letter online; June has faithfully been “redneckognizing” the fans by taking pictures of every single piece of mail they get. (Alana has admirers everywhere from Finland to Mexico to Israel!)
