Under the direction of my friend Bev, they did a fantastic job!
One moment that made me want to bust out laughing was when this cutie got up to say her line along with several others. After she finished, she took the time to pose for some pictures and threw up the victory sign just for good measure right in the middle of the program.
The little girl holding the purple bundle in the middle was Mary and let me tell you, she took her job seriously. There wasn't a chance that anything bad was going to happen to Baby Jesus!
After the program, one of my students took it upon himself to write down the words to one of the songs they sang. Can you figure out which Christmas carol it was?
Pretty sure this was the first time I've ever been asked how to spell virgin by a First Grader and I have to say I love the fact that it says, "Sleep in Heavenly Pees." Oh my! I have no end of entertainment when reading First Grade Writing!
Sleep in Heavenly Peas, friends.
