I couldn’t be more proud right now! Ashley, Zander, and Jace all did SO WELL in the play tonight! They didn’t embarrass me at all! 🙂 The only thing they did do that they shouldn’t have was as they were walking down the aisle, Jace said, “Hi, Mommy!” loud enough for everyone around to hear. It was sweet, though, so I’ll let it slide.
I’ll post the rest of the photos on Facebook once I edit them, but here are the important ones….
Ashley doing her speaking part:
She did SO well. For the first time, she didn’t sound like she was quoting something she had memorized. Since Ash is so shy, and this was her very first speaking part, I think she did GREAT!!!! I am SO very proud of her!!!
Here are my little shepherds….
Standing at the front, listening to the angels:
Looking confused because the other shepherd went up to the manger too early:
(Note: My boys did NOT go up at the wrong time. We had rehearsed it a million times, and they stayed where they were supposed to until it was time to go up. Again, SO proud!!!) 🙂
Bowing before the Baby Jesus:
Here are my boys all dressed up – and yes, Zander is a goof, I know. He acts like his dad:
I really cannot believe how well the play went!! I had seen it a dozen times before tonight, but tonight’s performance really got to me. Everyone in the play did such an amazing job, and the Salvation message couldn’t have been more plain. Really an all around excellent performance from everyone involved.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ve heard me mention Ms. Sabrina about a million times. She has become such a dear, dear friend, and I am so thankful for her. I love you, Sabrina! You and your mom did an AMAZING job with these kids – and adults!
I’ve also mentioned Brother Tim a time or two. He has also become very special to our family. Gene looks up to and admires him, and Tim’s son Jacob is where we got Parker’s middle name.
Anyway, tonight I finally got a picture of Brother Tim, Ms. Sabrina, and Ms. Liz (Sabrina’s mom). I thought I’d show off some pretty important people in my life:
Sabrina is SO gonna kill me when she sees this, but she knows how much I love her, and I’m pretty sure she’ll forgive me. If not, I’m going to have to do something very special for Christmas for her! 🙂
