A Christmas Story


Christmas is less than two weeks away. Sunday, yesterday, we had a presentation of "The Christmas Story" from the children of the church. Jonathan is not the child of mine who likes to be up in front of a crowd for any reason what so ever. As he gets older, he is slowly coming out of his shell, realizing that he gets more recognition when he does something like perform. The Sunday before, when the Children's Director stopped me and asked if Jonathan was going to come to the practice and get his part, of course I said yes. Jonathan wouldn't speak to me until after the rehearsal.

I had told him that Ms. Jennifer knew he didn't like being up in front of people and wouldn't give him a speaking part. Alyssa took him up to the church, so when he got home, he actually apologized for his attitude. Not only was he going to have lines to say, he was the 3rd narrator with the most lines. Luckily, they were going to have the lines on the podium, so there was no need to memorize, just knowing how to read what their lines were.

He was so excited to get all dressed up for church that morning. I was so proud of him for standing up there and reading his lines. That's him on the left in the picture in case you couldn't tell. Here is the link to the church sermon videos. It's the middle video choice. Michael is the one leading the singing.

Grampa and Grandy were there to see him and after the service, took us all out to lunch. Jonathan stayed for the Birthday Party for Jesus. The rest of us had a great time! I love that the kids are getting older and are more adult-like so we can all have lunch together and talk like adults. It's a good thing
Pin It!
