Mary Did You Know.....

That your baby soooo cute? *smile* I was Mary in our church's Christmas program. I didn't talk (it was mostly acting and music), but I sang back up and got to hold Baby Jesus, (( AKA Corbin )) the wholeeee time! He's just a doll! :) He's three months old, and this is me and him.

And Joseph, (( AKA, Chris, most annoying boy on earth )) Didn't get to hold the baby. >:) I'm sorry, Joseph, you're not gentle enough!!! This is me and Joseph.

Just a FYI, I did not like my costume! The dress was okay, but the head piece was hot, and itchy.

Anyway, It was called "Hay"llelujah. Get it, Hay? It's supposed to be the Nativity, but from the animals' point of view. Here's the cast:

Annunciation Angel: Chloie


Joseph: Chris

Troubadour Angels: Madeline, Molly Grace, Alexandra. (( They sang songs a lot and acompanied Mary and Joseph, kind of like Narrator angels! LOL ))

Blues Donkey: ((sang "He's a Soul Man )) Matthew

Innkeeper: Dakota

Baby Jesus: Corbin!

Cow: Weslea

Rooster: Cole

Mama Chicken: (She and Rooster sang "The Holy Ghost will Take the Chicken Out of You")

Ram: Brandon

Black Horse: Emma

lambs: Miranda and Madison

Sheep: Hannah

Dove: Brianna

Cat: Piper

Duck: Abigail

Bunny: Alexis

Goat: Ben

Some of the songs:

On the Road to Nazareth, sung by Weslea.

Jeremiah was a Prophet, sung by Sarah the Hippie Camel- (to the tune of Jeremiah was a Bullfrog).

Camel Train to Egypt, sung By Molly Grace, the Soul Singer Camel- (to the tune of Midnight Train to Georgia).

I'm a Believer, sung by Hannah the Sheep- (to the tune of Now I'm a Believer)!

Away in the Manger, sung by the Stars of Victory Land Preschool- same song, of course.

I'm Feeling Good, sung by the Troubadour angels at the opening- sung to the tune of that same song I'm Feeling Good.

Praising in the Streets, sung by The whole cast as the closing song- (To the tune of Dancing in the Streets).

As you can see, a lot of these songs are regular songs, changed to Christian sounding ones! Ms. Lori, the coordinator, was really creative. There were alot more songs. After the angels finished singing "In Excelsis Deo", Mr. Scott, started in singing Deo.... "De Light" (De Light comes and he makes earth his home...). It was funny!
