The most exciting night of the 3 year old's year

Carols night, including Church4Kids / Playgroup Christmas Pageant. 8 primary schoolers & 20 littlies. Whew!

The big kids were awesome. We've got some lovely singers. And the little ones had a ball.

SP was a very quiet sheep, a bit over-awed with the whole thing I think. And F spent most of the time on Nana's lap in the front row of the audience, rather than on the rug with her fellow angels, but she was mighty cute. 

If I had my time over, we'd spend 3 times as long rehearsing the big kids with parts, and 1/3 as long practicing the nursery rhymes with the little one. A lesson for next time. 

Praying especially for all the playgroup parents/grandparents/friends who came, many of whom may have heard the gospel for the very first time tonight. That makes it totally worth it.

    Our carols are next Sunday. But we don't do the whole pageant thing for the kids. Sometimes I think it would be good for them to participate a bit more than they do, but I'm a little reluctant to say so because I'm sure I'll then get asked to organise it ;) Some years they have brought the kids out the front to sing a Christmas song or something they've done at Good News Week (our kids' holiday outreach program) but this year the carols come before the Good News days so I think the kids part of the program was culled :(
