First of all, none of the pictures posted here are mine … not one single one! I have stolen each of these pictures off Facebook from Jesse! He has a super lens on his camera and his pictures were SO clear and mine were SO terrible … so … voila! Now I can tell you about Christopher's Fifth Grade Christmas pageant! They have been practicing for weeks and weeks, and last night was their BIG night!This was quite a production, by the way! Lots and lots of songs (14 of them!) and quite a storyline too about someone trying to steal Christmas away from this little western town and what happened with the elves and Santa Claus and a candy-cane girl that helped rescue Christmas.
Christopher had speaking parts in several of the numbers, and there was lots and lots of dancing as the kids sang ...
Aren't their costumes so great? Look how much fun they are having!
Christopher had a speaking part in "Hip Hop Elves."
The girl on the left is the bad person who was telling everyone that Christmas was NOT going to happen this year, and the girl on the right with the striped stockings told her that she cared about her feelings … and somehow everything got straightened out.
Christopher was in the front row for the dance number, "Cuz I'm Happy." He practiced this at my house for weeks! We would get the song up on Youtube and dance all over my house to it. It's such a fun song.
Good dance moves, Christopher!
My favorite number was "Just One Candle" that talks about one little candle lighting all of the others, sharing light to guide the way. Naturally, that one candle is JESUS who is the Light of the whole world … however, Jesus didn't get the credit here in this song (sadly). However, it is true that we can spread His light with our lives and can touch everyone around us, and brighten their world.
Great pictures, Jesse! Good job on your performance, Christopher! You didn't forget any of your lines and you danced very well! I loved being there to see it!
