I decided to brave letting Liam be involved, so the night before I had to come up with his costume (ok, so I could have done it in the two days prior - but that's not my style, last minute motivation is the way I roll). he was going to be a star, but they already had an absolutely adorable little star (seriously, she's DARN cute) and I didn't think it made sense to have two stars. I asked the director if maybe he could be an animal, since we didn't have any animals (there was Mary & Joseph, three shepherds, three angels, three wise men, a star, and a narrator) ... she said "sure, he can be an ass". LOL!!! (good sense of humor, I love it) so, a
his outfit was simple. I knew he had gray jeans and Jericho had a gray shirt, so I decided to make him a little hat! it was cute -in theory anyway- but it was a little "short" and I didn't do the ears too well so they were floppy ... but hey, it worked and he was adorable! and, I might add, he really did well ... especially considering he never went to either of the two practices! he had two "naughty" moments - for him, that's pretty amazing! one was when he crossed the stage (he was by Mary and Joseph) and walked right over to a microphone and make a sound ... that's my son, yep - right there!!! he walked right back, though, so I was impressed! that had been shortly after it started, and by ten minutes later -as it neared the end- he was in awe with fascination for the rotating Christmas tree. he edged closer and closer to it and then took off one of the ornaments ... "Mary" was laughing and I tried to whisper to her to tell him to stop, I think "Joseph" got the ornament and put it back on the tree and the kids finished up their show without a hitch!
all ready to go
