Okay, it's mommy blog o'clock, yes?
This about captures how last night's Christmas pageant at our parish started out. So much happy! Such squealing! Very doves! That's Cecilia, bringing up the rear there.
And Paul. Oh boy. How can a person be SO difficult to photograph? I mean, it's basically impossible. Granted I was Official Child Wrangler yesterday, so had little time to force him to look at the dang camera, but seriously. Y U NO LOOK AT CAMERA?
Some things I do like about that photo: Paul's friend Katie (as Elizabeth) standing next to him with her hands on her head. She and I are kind of soul mates, y'all. Also, shepherd with his face totally covered by his cloak. And tiny cow picking her ear on the left right there.
Katie signed up for stage crew this year. I think she loved it. Feeling like everything would actually fall apart without you? I mean it's not true, but you FEEL like that. And she loves to feel like that. Anyway, I didn't catch a photo of her last night (I suck. What can I say.) but she wears the exact same thing every day of her life so look! This really is precisely what she looked like hauling scenery around:
Who am I missing? Oh! Mary! Sorry Mary. She is too diaper-clad to be cast in the show, so daddy was on baby wrangling duty. Here, this happened this morning:
Voila! I did it! Two weeks in a row with the weekly photos of the chil'rens.
