Church Christmas Program AND Give Away Winner

Sock Fashion Expert and Archer Sang "Sweet Little Jesus Child"

Super Catman recited Luke 2 with the other kids. He had his own verse memorized and did it well.

Moonbeam remained unimpressed with this little boy's affectionate advances.

Today was our church Christmas program. The Archer and The Sock Fashion Expert played and sang "Sweet Little Jesus Child". They did such a great job!! I was so proud!! I thought I was recording them and planned to put the song up but all I got was a second clip by accident :-( I got a new camera and haven't gotten it all figured out yet. I did capture them practicing from behind last night, which sounded beautiful but it would look weird to put that up.
Super Catman was a part of the kids reading from Luke 2. He recited by memory "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field watching their flocks by night." He did real good too :-) As we settled in to listen to the speaker, a rather unpleasant odor wafted in my direction. I crinkled up my nose. I began feeling trapped in a group of people, assaulted with an odorous aroma. I shifted a little, imagining my entire family wearing gas masks and pondering whether or not there were any germs in inhaled flatulence. I distracted Moonbeam with her stuffed tiger and my red, shimmery scarf. On and on she laughed and somebody thanked God for happy children. Just when I started to settle in, the offensive odor began wafting in again, this time stronger. Oh the agony. "That's it!" I thought to myself, time to play "the baby is getting restless out maneuver". I picked up Moonbeam and the diaper bag and began making my way to the back of the building. Before I knew it, I was sitting in back with the baby, smiling about how I'd eluded the terrible smell. Just then it wafted up to my nostrils again. I groaned silently, looking in the back of Moonbeams diaper. Nothing there, but it was not long before there was. Who would have thought?!

The rest of the service was uneventful - then communion - then a big pot luck dinner. It was also a 50th birthday party and so afterward there were games with cake and ice cream. That was all well and fun except for a strange man who insisted on kissing Moonbeam which was a little disturbing to her rather protective siblings. Also, there was a small boy who chased her around wanting to give her a hug. That was kind of cute, but she was rather perturbed about the whole ordeal.

BTW BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Sturberry who won the Porcupine Quill Jewelry Give Away!! It will go out in the mail on Tuesday :-)
