Christmas Pageant

Katherine was in our church's Christmas pageant this morning.  Last year she had one line and was so nervous about it that they ended up having three kids say the line.  This year she volunteered to have a bigger part and ended up with a lot of lines.  She memorized them all the first week and was perfectly confident to be on stage.  We could hear her loud and clear during the program.  What a difference a year makes!
The pageant director (the woman in red in the middle of the kids) wrote the play and it was cute!  Katherine played a sister to an ornery boy who was sneaking peaks at his Christmas presents and got caught.  When their stressed out mom found out she cancelled Christmas.  The kids decided to go ahead and do the church Christmas pageant themselves and all ended well with a Jesus is the Reason for the Season message.  Since the pageant in the play was suposed to be kid-run there were funny lines and scenes.  Mary whined a lot, the littlest shepherd didn't want to take care of her sheep, and Katherine, as the inn keeper, had a line where she looks at a "pregnant" Mary and announces "Wow! You look like you're about to pop!" 
Of course, there were dropped lines and missed cues and the microphones didn't always work, but the pageant was marvelous anyway.  That's half the charm!  I love church Christmas pageants and I love that my often shy and reserved girl was willing to step up and play a part and play it well.
