Nothin’ Ever Happens in BethlehemPosted: December 19, 2012
Yesterday was the annual Christmas pageant at Sam’s school. His music teacher does an amazing job of putting together a new show each year that tells the Christmas story and incorporates the same costumes (a shoestring budget would be an increase for her!).
Yesterday’s show was about a group of angels who are sent on an assignment in Bethlehem. There’s lots of complaining about how boring and unexciting Bethlehem is… thus the song, Nothin’ Ever Happens in Bethlehem. Quite a cute number!
Sam was a shepherd this year and he did a great job singing and dancing to the 70′s-style version of Angels We Have Heard on High.
My favorite part of the day was watching Sam and his friends together. They are a tight-knit bunch and it’s evident that they love each other very much.
I can’t say that Sam has the same feelings towards his mama’s camera…
I am so spoiled by the fact that Tim works right in town. He was able to make it to the pageant and then we enjoyed a post-pageant, kick-off-Christmas-break lunch at Cracker Barrel.
