Alaina's Christmas program

Alaina goes to preschool - called Threeschool because she's in the three year old program. Tonight was her Christmas program. We weren't sure how she would do because she's quiet in front of people, but she did a great job. It was a little frustrating because they put the youngest kids on the bottom row, and we couldn't see her. I ended up going to the back of church and taking pictures down the middle aisle. I'm glad I have a good telephoto lens.

"Away in a manger"  - resting their heads.


"We three kings" - searching for the baby Jesus


Here she's a little irritated with the boy next to her.  He kept making his motions in front of her.  :)

The teachers were trying to keep lots of toddlers calm while others said parts...


This was a praise song and she was enjoying it!


This is the Jesus tree.  They were putting ornaments on it the showed different parts of His life, starting with a donkey and ending with a crown.  It was a very nice program and the kids did a good job.


Ruby slept through the whole thing.


A family shot afterwards. I love how Alaina is looking at Aaron.  :)

So Allaina is your son's little girl? This is adorable! I love the children's plays. Whatever they do is adorable and perfect. I can remember stressing so much over the Christmas plays and went off perfectly imperfect every time. Ruby looks like a angel. Isn't it wonderful. Hope you all are doing well.

There is nothing sweeter and more enjoyable than the little ones when they have a program. Loved seeing your pictures. I cant say it enough, you have two beautiful granddaughters!

What FUN!!! This really makes me homesick for my teaching days and the big Christmas productions. We always ended up with something funny happening with the youngest kids - like girls on the front row of the stage throwing their skirts up over their heads!

Oh how cute! I just love seeing the little ones in Christmas programs - there is something so sweet and innocent them :) The Christmas program at my church is this coming Sunday and I am really looking forward to it.

Have a lovely week, Mari! Hug!

What a wonderful way to feel the Christmas spirit!

Hello Mari, It took me sometime to get back to you. Yes, there's not many Maris but in my case it's a nickname to Maria. :)

You grandaughter looked adorable on stage. I can imagine how it was more exciting for the family viewing the kids performance. They're wonderful.

What a wonderful Christmas program. Alaina is just darling! I really like how they had meaning in the ornaments as they decorated the tree!

Well, she is just adorable - top to bottom!! That little guy in the plaid shirt is already a flirt!! Too cute. Thanks for sharing. Ruby is also adorable. Great family shot!

Precious photos and that last family photo is wonderful.

How very sweet, and they're all so adorable. Alaina is just beautiful! I kind of got a couple of tears seeing that little boy; aren't they so funny at age. He reminds me of our Ben when he was little.

Ruby, what can I say. Little angel so precious.

Love these photos and glad it turned out so well.

Wow, I sure missed a lot on my latest hiatus from blogging. Congratulations on your newest granddaughter! She's just perfect and I love her name. These pictures of Alaina are priceless. I've missed not getting to go to Christmas programs, since my kids are all grown. Excited to get to do it all over again with my granddaughter!

Jenny said...

Great job by Alaina! I love her outfit. And enjoying the praise part is the mark of a special girl. Ruby looks like the most contented baby in the world. Aaron and Laura look tuckered out but so happy! xoxo

You took some great shots of the whole event. I love the way Ruby slept through the whole thing. Very sensible! :D

Tonight I'm going to my last ever carol concert for my younger daughter, as she's leaving school next summer.
