A few weeks ago, I received a phone call from someone from the church I grew up in (Siloam UMC). They were in need of a baby to be Baby Jesus for their Christmas play and wanted to know if Margo was available. It just so happened that we were able to attend.
It was a family affair. David and I were Mary and Joseph by default. Madeline and Lydia were angels. It was a short program with a brief dialogue at the beginning, followed by a reading of the Christmas story with all the characters walking in. Short and sweet.....which was probably best for our wiggly girls! Actually, our angels did quite well. And yes, Lydia did pick her nose!
Baby Jesus did very well in her acting debut. She had one little coughing spell and even "talked" a little. There was no fussing or crying and I didn't even have to use her paci! This is as close as it will get to us having a boy!
