There's times when I don't have a camera, but there are certain images ingrained in my brain. Here's my mental scrapbook from yesterday:
Photo #1: Jessica Reese standing and rocking Baby Jesus backstage to the beat of We Three Kings Of Orient Are.
Photo #2: Josh McLean grinning, looking at his costume, then drawing his arms back into a karate stance.
Photo #3: Justin turning his head left and right to see what's happening around him while I'm trying to place his headpiece on his head.
Photo#4: Jasmine asking me for a candycane because my "daddy" wants one. I asked her if it was for the guy in the wheelchair, and she nodded and said, "yes, for your Daddy." I laughed and told her that was my husband. She then insisted that he eat it, which he couldn't because it had paper on it. Josh McLean stepped in to help, and then got in trouble for having sticky hands! Serves Bobby right for picking on kids about their candy!
Photo #5: The primary girls going through the hand motions of Away in a manger, and the boys belting out their parts.
Photo #6: Dress up time in the nursery.
Photo #7: Jonathan's facial expressions as I teased him about his Christmas list while he helped me set up communion.
Photo #8: Michelle's smile as she calmed down.
Photo #9: My finally up and ghastly lit Christmas tree. I ran out of lights and mistakenly bought a strand of colored lights instead of clear. 3/4 of my tree has clear lights, and the top part has multi-colors. But I'm too tired and ready to get it done and over with to go back and redo. And it will probably save me time because i won't be as inclined to sit and smile and look at it.
