Church Christmas Program 2014

Tyler and Nathan both were able to participate in the Church Christmas Program this year.  You can see last year's post here.  Hard to believe Grant was so little just a year ago.  

We had practice for the big performance on Saturday, December 13.  

Saturday practice. 

Nathan wasn't too sure about this performance thing so he sat and watched for a few songs. 

He was all about playing the bells though.  :)

Grant sat with me and ate snacks while the big boys practiced.  

The Sunday of the performance was an exciting one.  The boys were all dressed in their Christmas outfits from Grandma Zick.   

Both boys were supposed to be sheep...and look at the camera.   You can see how well that turned out. :) 

Tyler was very into the program this year as he was his program at Little Rascals too (another blog post for that one).  

Aunt Susan helped Tyler get the microphone ready. 

Tyler was asked to memorize and speak a line in the Christmas program this year.  
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." - Isiah 7:14

He just marched up there and spoke with such confidence.  The other speakers were all older grade school kids.  We were so proud of him. The best part was after Tyler finished saying his line (I so wish I would have gotten it on video) Nathan shouted out so the whole church could hear "Good job, Tyler!"  It was so sweet and cute that he was so proud of his big brother I laughed and got teary eyed all at the same time.  

The boys also practiced the rainbow bells for several weeks prior to the performance. 
 They played Joy to the World and did a great job!

Tyler was sure to instruct Nathan when NOT to play his bell.  

"Hey, Tyler" 

Nathan was happy to see Dad, Popo, Grandpa Wood, Sandy, Krista, Anna, Erin, Jeff...okay so pretty much the whole Wood family that wasn't involved in the church production.  
GG, Aunt Susan, Grandma and Mommy were all helping out with the program.  

See them...up there!

Nathan refused to wear the sheep hat.  I don't really blame him.  The boys both had on black corduroy pants and the cotton balls from the hats and gloves were not a good combo with the pants. 

Such a two-year old!  

And we might as well pick our nose in front of the whole church while we wait too!  Unbelievable!  
Thanks to my dad who was in charge of photography for the performance and captured this classic moment.  

Nathan is such a little ham! 


Yep, the family is still up there. 

It sure is great to have our kiddos involved in telling the Christmas story and learning so much in the process.  I know I said it a thousand times before but I will say it again...holidays are so much fun with the kids!
