The children did a nativity play. I couldn't believe that the 4/5 year olds could remember their lines. I was impressed. Also one of them was a narrator and read from a sheets of paper. Wow. The teacher got down on her hands and knees and was the donkey. She isn't a young thing either. The baby Jesus was one of the kids sitting in a baby stroller, hah. The outfits were really cute. I guess this was a spur of the moment play. After the play we went into the church and waited for them to change into their clothes. Then here they came with Mabel in the lead (she was line leader today). They had paper halos on and each carried a battery operated light and were singing "This little light of mine". They were loud and all singing different words at the same time.
Before they marched in the teacher stood up front. She said I know a lot of you are facing illness and sadness right now. She said that these children have so much joy right now. J O Y.........and they did. They were happy and being so polite and just adorable. How true that statement is. I then thought that the word I choose this year was ENJOY.....and I chose that because it had the word JOY in it.
Now you are wondering where the pictures are. Well, I have two in my camera memory as I forgot to take the card with me. My cell phone had just gone dead before I got there. My DIL took lots, so I hope she sends them to you. After the singing we went back to the classroom. The children made frames with buttons to decorate. They had each had their picture taken with a friend. Then they gave that friend the framed picture wrapped as a gift. They would tell that person Merry Christmas and Thank You. It was so sweet.
So instead of the adorable children, I will show you a couple pictures from around my house. Maybe I can show you the others ones later.
Oh, Mabel was a fairy........but she was really an angel, hah.
The angels in my kitchen. Little flower from school fundraiser.
My Christmas girls. I told you I had an idea for them.
