We were so thankful to hear the wee voices of the children in our church family recite a large portion of Luke 2 (even the 3 year olds wound up memorizing much of it!) and then hear them sing O Come All Ye Faithful together. They did an amazing job! We were sad a few of our wtbc children were away that day and missed it. Next year!
After the pageant, we got some of the babies to join us for a quick picture. I'm so thankful for all these little ones.
My sweet friend, Paula, wrapped a pile of gifts for the children to enjoy opening following their time on stage.
Later that same day, our church family (along with our dear friends from New City) celebrated Advent with our first Christmas Candlelight Service. It was a sweet time of fellowship and singing. Unfortunately Ella fell asleep in my arms during the service, so I wasn't able to capture any candle-flickering moments. All of these below are from the time of preparation beforehand.
