It's been a busy few days around here!!
Yesterday was such a special day. It was Brian's very first Christmas Pageant at school!! He was, quite fittingly, a Wise Man. His entire class practiced very hard to recreate the story of the birth of baby Jesus and did a beautiful job!! (Seriously - some of the acting was really good!)
After a night of about two hours sleep - my photography skills were very poor. This is all I got...
Brian's good friend, Daniel, was one of the other Wise Men!
Brian walked down the center aisle to the manger scene right on cue.
Brian's been holding out on me! Every day I asked him if he was learning any special songs...or if he had any lines in the show...and he never had an answer for me. Yet the day of the show he was up there singing away - songs I've never heard before! It was so adorable. And they ended with "Away in a Manger" - my favorite Christmas song of all time.
Brian was so excited that Granny and Aunt Bean came to his Christmas Pageant! Daddy had to work and was really sad to miss it.
The day ended with a "Happy Birthday Jesus" celebration with lots of yummy food - and Brian sat with his two good buddies, Daniel and Timmy.
In other news, Hope turned THREE WEEKS today! We celebrated by getting her her very own WubbaNub binky holder! If she's anything like her brothers, she'll love that green hospital binky for the next month or two before it's history.
Happy Three Weeks, Hope! You truly have been the most incredible gift... to us - and to many others.
Today is Hope's first day wearing an "outfit!!" I have always had her in sleepers. But we're off to our family Christmas party this afternoon. Hope will be meeting some Aunts, Uncles and cousins for the first time!!
