The following Sunday, December 16, Savannah, Sadie, Rylie, and Callie all participated in their very first Children's Christmas Musical!!!  Savannah and the twins even had their own speaking part!  Their line read, "And they shall call him Emmanuel, 'God is with us.'" THEY DID IT PERFECTLY!!!!!  It was so loud and crisp and clear...  and we were SO PROUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One hilarious moment of the whole production was when Callie came out on stage...  her tights were a little loose, so Jen put an extra pair of panties on the outside in order to hold her leggies up!  Unfortunately, those panties slid down too, and Callie walked out with her panties drooping between her knees!!!!  Hahahaha!!!!  It was absolutely hysterical and the whole church laughed!!  It was such a sweet, innocent moment;  Callie thought everyone was just happy to see her!!  She threw out her biggest smile, waved to everyone, and danced and sang her little heart out for the entire play...
What a precious little baby!!  (I think this was the ONLY moment she wasn't cheesing it up! Glen was probably talking here and she needed a little more attention, please.)  :)

Daddy brought his best girl roses after her big night!

Cutie Cal and Al!!
THAT is the sassy smile Callie had on all night...
Don't you just want to kiss all over her?!?!
So excited for the many, many, many more children's programs to come...
including those awesomely funny 'undies' moments.  ;)
