The First Nativity

Friday, December 12, 2014

This week Gracie had her first nativity. It is something I have looked forward to since before she was even born. I had always imagined watching my kids grow up. Attending every school concert or performance and finally this week I got to attend the first one. I know for the next 14 years or so I will see plenty of their performances and I can't imagine ever missing one.

The build up is great. For weeks Gracie has been coming home singing the different concert songs her favourites being 'Away in a manger' and 'Christmas Pudding'. The nursery class do a concert on their own separate from the other year groups and we were all amazed at how well they did! For a bunch of three and four year olds they were brilliant! All singing, playing instruments and doing the actions, there was only one to cry because he got shy. They all sat quietly and joined in with the story of Jesus being told by a local Vicar. It was absolutely lovely to watch! 

Gracie was an elf. It was no traditional nativity but the songs all fitted nicely! She looked so proud of herself on stage and kept giving us huge smiles when she saw us all watching her. It was seriously one of the cutest things I have ever seen in my life and I can't wait for the next one!
