Puppets Rock Out to the Christmas Story

This morning at church we had our annual children's end-of-year presentation. Each Sunday School group presents an item, then each of the children are given a small (book) gift to celebrate the end of another successful year.

Alana received Sophie's Encore by Nancy Rue.

From the back of the book: "How can God let bad things happen? Sophie's baby sister, Hope, is born with Down syndrome, and the Flakes dis her over an annoying new girl. Even her research as medical expert Dr. Devon Downing won't fix things, but Sophie learns love is at work even when she can't see it."

Josh got My Life as Crocodile Junk Food by Bill Myers.

From the back of the book: "Chased by thieves through roaring rapids, over a killer waterfall, and into the hands of primitive jungle natives! This isn't exactly what Dad had in mind when he took his son on a missions trip to the South American rain forest. But he should have known better. After all, we are talking about Wally-If-Anything-Can-Go-Wrong-It-Will-McDoogle."

The most entertaining part of the morning for me (sorry kids) was the showing of a video that someone had stumbled over on You Tube. I won't try to explain it, you just have to watch it.

Love the puppet play. Thanks. Just got home from presentation night at school so it was nice to watch something light hearted.

Were you at presentation night as a teacher or as a parent? Much more stressful as a teacher if you have responsibilities, as a parent it's just applauding and looking proud!
