We've been attending a new church for the last couple of months. It's the one that's closer to home and has lots of kids. On Sunday, Amanda and Christiana participated in the Christmas program. We've been singing the songs at home and Amanda and Ana know all of them but wouldn't sing when we were at church. Finally, a week ago, at our first practice on the stage, the music leader had the little girl who was leading "Away in the Manger" sing the first verse all by herself. She's about two years older than Amanda and Amanda was so impressed to hear her sing all by herself that she finally started singing with the other kids.
Of course, she still wouldn't go up on stage without me and Ana wouldn't leave my side so I planned to sit up there next to the younger kids. Amanda sang and had a good time. Ana never sang while she was up there and some last minute changes left her without a chair and a sign to hold so that was upsetting for her but she recovered pretty well.
After the program, I tried to get a few pictures for the girls in their costumes. Seriously, these were the best ones. They were pretty excited and squirrelly.
