The Christmas Story...Emmaus Style

Emmaus Road put on its first Christmas pageant last Saturday night. Justina and the kids worked for a few weeks on the skit that Justina wrote. It was the cutest thing. We had kids ranging in age from 9 to under 1. House church hasn't lended itself to a huge growth spurt in the number of kids so we were able to use everyone of them. You may be wondering who the "weirdo with the Beardo" is? Well you guessed it, it's Brooklyn. She had the honor of playing Joseph because she was one of the three kids (girls only) that can read. She was actually kind of excited about it. Sidney was the angel and loved that she got to look beautiful. Zach was not so thrilled about being a shepard and refused to wear anything on his head (I know you are thinking surely not Zach). Both of the girls had solos. Sidney is ready to sing again at any time but Brooklyn didn't enjoy that part quite as much. The play went off without a hitch and it made for a great evening.

Luke 2:9-12 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

Character Counts

On Friday Brooklyn won a special award at school for her service. Each month they work on a new character trait and she received the honor for her service work at school. She is such a sweetie and always willing to help. We are so proud of her.

The Divine Sisterhood of the Traveling Blow Pop Undies

The Yada's (my old bible study from N.P.) came to my area for a weekend packed full of shopping. I think that we all needed it. Good food, good fun, and a new pair of Blow Pop Undies that showed up in our gift exchange. I can't wait to see Lisa model them. I'm sure that they are bound to show up in another exchange some day. Thanks ladies for the great time.

Oh, Yes! I found a picture of them.
