Last night at church, Ashley, her mother-in-law Sally, Mr. Bryan, and two other awesosme church ladies took a group of first through fourth graders and put on Charlie Brown's Christmas. I figured that it would be an abridged version but it was not!! These children put on the real how from start to finish! It was the best show I have ever seen a group of children put on. Unreal. They have been practicing since October and it was evident.
My heart was so touched at the nuring home. We have several church members there that we took time to visit. David was fantastic at the nursing home and was so kind and polite to all. Here he is with Mrs. Connor who was a beloved teacher here in our county and she asked all 35ish children to line up to hug her. We sang carols and visited with residents at the nursing home. Walking those halls and singing Silent Night with David and our church friends touched my heart. I must take David back again soon. He loved it!!
I am in overload with Christmas spirit now. I am so thankful that David got to shine last night as Woodstock, and our sweet and shy girl rocked her angel character last night in front of a packed church. I am thankful for the friends that came to cheer my kids on, and most importantly for the gift of that little baby who came and changed us all.
