Two Angels and a Virgin

As Sunday school director at our church, Susan decided this year to direct a Sunday school Christmas program--the type of thing typical at many churches but not done at ours for a few years (and no, I don't know why not). From my mom's own collection of Sunday school Christmas music, Susan chose A Christmas Carol Pageant, which the children at church performed tonight. There were Bible verses, hymns, carols, and children in costumes. And it was all over in about a half-hour with cookies served afterward. Success!

As husband of the Sunday school director, I enjoyed reserved seating at the front, meaning I got some great photos and videos of the program:

Abigail as an angel

Suzanna sings "Lullaby, My Little Son"

Abigail and Hillary sing "Born Is He, the Child Divine"

Suzanna and Abigail sing "A Child Thou Art"

The whole herd of becostumed kiddos were cute enough, but I was especially proud of the Moberg dollies and their lovely singing. And I wasn't the only one there proud of 'em. Also in attendance in my pew were Susan's dad Roger (who chauffeured the girls' unofficial foster grandma Monica); her sister Cassie, Cassie's husband Nick, and their 10-month-old son Davis (all from SC); and Susan's cousin Kelli and her 8-month-old daughter Kynnedi (from CO).

Kynnedi, Kelli, and Kelli's mom Jake (who is Susan's aunt) are here for a couple days to see area relatives at Christmastime; and Cassie, Nick, and Davis arrived today to spend several days at our house for Christmas. "Yay!" for the return of family members for the holidays! I'm sure there will be photos and stories to share in the coming days, so come back and check it out.

  1. I SO remember all the rehearsels for the church programs. No one wanted to sing and the ones that did were all that could be heard in every song! Then it was gift exchanges after the actual program and goodies to be had in the basement after that!
