First United Methodist Preschool Christmas Program

Quite possibly the perfect way to celebrate the Christmas season is to watch a crew of 3 and 4-year-olds portray the simple miracle of the birth of our Savior. 

"Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a
little child will never enter it.”

We found out just before Thanksgiving break that Harrison was given the part of Joseph for the Christmas program at his school, complete with lines to memorize and songs to practice.  At first, he wasn't too sure who exactly Joseph was, but once we reinterated the story again, he was quite excited and the proceeded to tell anyone who would listen all about it.

We had a good laugh when he was telling his Meme ...

Harrison:  "Hey Meme, guess who I'm gonna be in the Christmas program?"
Meme:  "I dunno."
Harrison:  "Joseph!!"
Meme:  "Joseph??!?  Man, he's like the star of the show!"
Me:  "Ummm, I'm pretty sure Jesus is the star of the show..."
Meme:  "Well, Joseph's pretty importnat too!"

Those little guys had practiced for weeks and weeks and finally the time came for their performance.  We laughed and laughed at their cuteness and mess-ups and carrying on.  Maybe a few tears of joy too...  (well, maybe that was just me)

"The Innkeeper" (Elijah - in green), "Joseph" (Harrison) and "Mary" (Eden)

"Please sir, my wife is very tired.  Do you have a place we can stay tonight?"

Red-faced from belting out the tunes!

After the show - So proud!
