Hark How the Bells, Sweet Colored Bells

December 19th  - Christmas Sunday!  Ahhh yes... I woke up a tad bit early so that we could all get gussied up minus the usual, typical hectic Sunday morning stress.  Believe it or not - it worked.  We all made it out the door donning our holiday duds and had smiles on our faces. Posing in front of the Christmas tree is a family must, and one of the rare occasions all 5 of us make it in the same picture.  However, I think the pics of the 3 kiddos are much cuter!!!

Following Sunday School, the children came upstairs and sat on the front pews.  After the prelude and a brief introduction they took the stage to open our worship service.  They played "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "Away in the Manger."  Caleb played yellow, Jeremiah had the responsibility of dark blue, and Rachel chimed right in with purple.  The kiddos were so cute playing the bells.  They took the task really seriously and were glued on the color-coded cards being flipped.  It was quite intense for 4 and 5 year-olds, but they were so stinkin' proud of themselves as were we!  Papaw and Mamaw even came up to catch this musical phenomenon.
