The Cow, Mary and Baby Button Baby Jesus -- Wordless Wednesday

Elijah (4) felt "Joy to the World" wasn't being sung joyfully enough and so he leaned in towards the mic and sang "Let every heart prepare him ROOM" ... and then they moved the mic away from him.  Sufficient joyfulness had been reached.

Desiree (7) did great as Mary.  She had been worried about memorizing lines, but I told her all she had to do was look lovingly at the baby.

And then ... her comedic timing alarm "rang".  At the end of the pageant, Desiree stood to bow and made sure that Baby Button Baby Jesus took a few bows too.

  1. It's the babies show, he should be allowed a few bows... they look adorable.

  2. Perfect! Glad to hear the kids made the production a little more 'them'!

  3. Abi, That's true. Part of me felt that way and the other part of me was concerned she'd offend someone...

    Thanks all!

  4. She just wanted to make sure Jesus got the clapping he was due :). Looks like a fun pageant! Did you ever read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever? If not, I think you would love it. Your post reminded me of it.

  5. Julie, I loved that book growing up! I actually thought about reading it to my kids this year, but decided to save it for next year. Have you read it to your boys?

  6. You have beautiful children. I especially love the expression on your daughter's face...just so sweet.

  7. Thanks!

    Jodi, I love her expression too -- she had the "loving look" down pat.

  8. LOL I love that Baby Jesus took some bows! Everyone knows he is the star of the show!
