Christmas Pageant

Yesterday was our church's Sunday School Christmas Pageant. Is there anything cuter or more joyful that Sunday School kids telling the story of Jesus's birth? Lila's class were the Heavenly Hosts, so they dressed as angels and sang Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star. Ian's class sang O Little Town of Bethlehem. Both kids did a fantastic job!
We got SO lucky and were able to sit two rows behind where Lila's class sat. And they stood up and turned around in their pews to perform so we had the perfect view. Here's Lila giving us a wave.

And a smile

Singing all the words! With a blankie in hand for support.

They say "Glory to God in the highest. Peace on Earth, goodwill to all." Then the words to the song are Twinkle Twinkle Christmas star/Over Bethlehem afar/Up above the manger high/Dancing dancing in the sky/ Twinkle twinkle Christmas star/Over Bethlehem afar.

Here she is when everyone clapped.

Ian was in back because he's so tall and he didn't smile much, so I don't have many pictures. But he did a fantastic job and I'm glad he's still willing to participate at the old age of 13.

After the pageant there was a cookie reception. Cara reached over and grabbed a cookie off of Chris's plate without any hesistation and stuffed it in her mouth. She is a big fan of cookies.
