Sunday night was our (older) children's Christmas Program. I sat through several rehearsals and honestly I wasn't sure if it would come together or not. But it did and it was spectacular. Of course I was beaming proud of my son who played "Max" and had the great honor of having the one part in the play that summed up the meaning of Christmas. Our preschooler son had a part as a hungry raccoon but due to some difficulties back stage they missed their cue and never came out until the curtain call. He was still proud to get to be on the stage in his costume and he has two more performances coming up (see part 2 and 3 in the weeks to come).
