On Sunday we really enjoyed our annual parish Christmas pageant.
There's Paul in the stripes right up front, watching intently as Lizzy, who got to play Mary this year, held and played with (real, live) baby Jesus in the manger.
A view of the whole scene including the choir in the parish gym. It was precious.
After the show, Lizzy (Mary) with baby Jesus and baby Jesus' two big sisters. Sweet friends!
Outdoor Decor: check!
Remember the gingerbread cookies I promised I'd make? On Tuesday we totally did it except that I told the little ones that the kitchen had to be clean before we could start.
"Look...we're doing an ingredients dance!"
See. That's what I told them.
