Great Joy!

I love Christmas pageants and this was the first year that the boys fully participated.  Jonah was so excited about being a shepherd and Rowan surprised me by walking up on stage without me (though I walked up to the stage with him).  I suppose pageant is a strong word for kids walking onto stage through verses of a Christmas carol (our church opted out of parts this year as so much of advent can be focused on preparing the production of a full play and not on advent itself), but it was lovely just the same!

Love the pictures-so nice to see your church and my nephews! Liliana is to be in her first pageant this Saturday as a shepherd at the Christmas eve service at our church--I'm so excited to see how she will react. Merry Christmas!

Which carol did your church use for this? All of us working in children's ministry were so tired and stressed by Christmas Eve, we are already thinking about how to make next year different! Thank you so much for your blog Emily, it is a huge source of inspiration and encouragement!
