A Sweet Angel and an Adorable Elf

Among all the holiday parties and gatherings of the season, I enjoy our grandkids’ performances most, and yesterday I had the opportunity to attend two in one morning...one right after the other.

Phoebe was a sweetly singing angel in her kindergarten Christmas devotional. The music was mostly sacred hymns, and the focus was on the gifts we can give Jesus. Phoebe had a small speaking part, played the xylophone, and took her role very seriously as she and the other students helped fill the room and my heart with the Christmas spirit.

Makai was an adorable little elf in his preschool Christmas program.  The stage was crowded with brightly dressed and energetic elves, and their music was as lively as they were. Several of Makai’s cousins have attended the same preschool, so I’ve seen the program more than once, but I loved watching him sing with his big smile and hand motions to match!

This is one of the reasons I’m grateful we live so close to most of our family, and it was a great way to start my day!
