o little town of bethlehem

- a play by sophia.

cutest mary i ever did saw

here is the manger scene...
baby jesus is wrapped in swaddling clothes.
the bowl of m&m's is frankincense.
the rock is myrrh
my big ol ring is the gold
the cream blanket is hay
the cheetah stuffie is a monkey (ok she strayed a bit from the story there)

my sweet mary

sophia grace you blew me away when you did this all by yourseslf!
there was no help from us.
your imagination is awesome.
your spririt even brighter.
you followed the star (our ceiling spotlight)

you know this story.
you were all about being mary and taking care of your baby jesus.
you had the blanket out waiting for his arrival so you could wrap him in swaddling clothes.

i had to go get grama and grampa so that they could witness your awesomeness.

we then all played a part in your play.
mommy, daddy and grama were wisemen.
grampa was a shepherd.

you touched us all with your beautiful little play.

a wonderful christmas memory.

something we will never forget.

OMGoodness! I could totally take those pics and put them on my blog and everyone would think they were Ella! Our girls look sooooo much alike it is crazy! Especially in those pictures! How freaky! And lucky for us, they act very much alike also:) I so wish we lived closer so they girls could play together!
