|Ready to shine|
Lucy and Jacob ran around a bit. Then Lucy had her fill and decided she didn't want to be in the play anyway.

Meanwhile, I was in church holding seats. Mommy and Lucy came back at 4:40 to wait for the kids to come in. The performance was quite nice, though not as great as Jacob's school nativity, but that will be a post later this week. The songs here were a bit too much like show tunes. I guess my taste is just old fashioned.
The sermon was definitely focused on the children and had a great message about the importance of giving and love. I wish it had a little more for the parents. At one point, father had a present and he asked some of the children to guess what was in it. Jacob was a little dumbfounded at first, but then he guessed, "Frankincense?" Which got a good laugh.
Amazingly, Mass only ran a bit after 6 p.m., so bedtime was hardly delayed, even though we did have dinner and one present opened by each child, since they were so good all day.

Merry Christmas to all!
