Tonight the boys and I were invited by my parents to Elon Baptist Church's Christmas program. Elon is my parent's church. Elon is also the church I grew up attending.
The children of the church performed the Christmas program . . .
They did a wonderful job reading the scripture and singing the Christmas songs.
It was a very sweet and meaningful program. . . .or at least the little bit of the program I got to see. . . .
You see -- I was asked to leave in the middle of the program. . . . by my mother . . .
Shane was being a little disruptive. He wouldn't sit in my lap but insisted on standing just outside the pew in the aisle to watch the program. He asked a lot of questions and talked more than he should have. . . but he wasn't that loud or that bad . . . but every time I looked at my mother . . . her face . . . total displeasure . . . until finally she asked me to take him outside.
My child was embarrassing Nana. . . at her church . . .
So we went to the nursery area and played until the program was over.
Shane didn't care at all that Nana was embarrassed.
Nope. He was having too much fun.
After the program, we had a surprise visitor -- Santa Claus! It was at this point, I felt safe to bring Shane back into the church sanctuary.
I warned Alex before his picture not to mess with Santa's hat or beard!
I made some marshmallow reindeer pops to take. They turned out pretty cute. Here is Shane holding one so I could take a picture:
I found the recipe for making these on one of the blogs I follow - http://www.astepinthejourney.com/
The recipe for the marshmallow reindeer pops can be found HERE.
Her reindeers look better than mine :/ oh well.
But she didn't have the cute kid holding them in her pictures :)
Such is my life with boys . . . if it's not one embarrassing me . . . it's another one! I guess that's why I don't flinch anymore when I have my boys with me in public. . . . I'm over the embarrassment . . . besides . . . that's life with
The Ferrell Boys and Me :)
