Preschool Christmas Program

I went up to Steph's yesterday so I could go with her to AJ's Christmas program. This, of course, is my darling grandson, Will! He's just too cute not to get a picture!

Anyway -- the program was at the church where the preschool meets. These are mostly 4 year olds, maybe one or two 3 year olds. They enacted the Christmas story. AJ was one of the wise men, the boy behind him was a camel! They all proceeded down the center aisle of the church.
When they got to the front of the church, they all lined up and the narrator was saying the baby Jesus was in the manger. (That's Mary waving the baby Jesus in the air so everyone could see He was in the manger!)

They all sang Away in the Manger (there is nothing cuter than 20 four year olds singing that song). They sang a couple of other songs and then wished everyone a Merry Christmas. It was just too adorable.
Then, they had to wait til the teacher finished speaking: I think this shot is typical of the age group! smile


And then they got to file out of the church and we had to give them 15 minutes or so before we could go get him to take him home (Grandma had to go get AJ -- specific instructions to his mom!)

It was a great program -- so much better when it's your own grandchild!
I managed to get there and back home before the dreaded winter storm arrived -- which didn't actually materialize til midnight last night. We were supposed to get 8 - 14 inches of snow. I think we might have gotten 8. Supposed to get more tomorrow and Tuesday, but I no longer believe anything the weathermen tell us! I did manage to bake cookies today while Bill spent a few hours outside clearing paths for the dogs and clearing the sidewalks and paths to the bird feeders. Our neighbor did come over and plow the drive for us, thankfully.

Gratitudes:
I'm grateful I got brave enough to drive up to Steph's yesterday. The roads were clear and I thoroughly enjoyed AJ's program. Because of the weather so far this late fall, I haven't been up there or seen them since Thanksgiving.

Very cute - I bet it does make a big difference when it's your grandchildren you're going to see.

Good for you for driving up! I don't drive much this time of year if I can avoid it. Our main roads are clear but there's a layer of packed snow/ice on our secondary roads and the ramps to the highways tend to be bad too. I thought people knew how to drive in snow up here (I don't being from the south) but the news we full of all the accidents people were having.
