Myrrh, Frankincense, Gold, and Fishy Crackers. Wait. What?!?

Our preschool puts on a Musical and Nativity Production and oh-my-heart it made me smile!! It's chaos and only a few of the kids actually participate, while the rest hide behind their parents' legs, but it's just the most hilarious, sweet thing you've ever seen!!! (I should warn you that I used my DSLR camera but could not for the life of me figure out how to adjust the lighting...when I put it into automatic, it "grayed" everyone out...when I put it into some of the other settings, it blurred people out or whited them out with the flash. I've since discovered how to adjust the ISO. Oops)

 There was an adorable cow:
 And a sheep:
Aiden played a Wise Man
Isabella played The Angel:
And Connor (far left below) played Joseph:
This is where Aiden and Isabella stayed for the entire performance. Off Stage. Except when I finally put the bowl of crackers on the stage, and Aiden went and sat (with his back to the audience) on the stage.
Seriously. We needed an intervention with the fishy crackers for a certain Wise Man. The funny part was that when they needed the Wise Man to give his gift to Joseph and Mary for Baby Jesus, Aiden wouldn't go - until his teacher said, "And the wise man brought Baby Jesus fishy crackers..." and then he walked over to give them to him. That's the little known secret of the story of Christmas. Bet you didn't know they brought him myrrh, frankincense, gold, and fishy crackers?!?
Connor had a few lines and they were equally adorable!
Here he is with Mary and Baby Jesus:
My adorable husband had to take Isabella up for her part. Her teacher said, "And the angel came, carried by her Daddy, to warn Joseph about King Herod." She clung to Mr. Howard's arms and WOULD NOT let go.
Here's a photo showing Aiden's participation (the bowl of fishy crackers is at his feet and the audience is facing the other direction):
And because I think you'd be missing out if I didn't include just a tiny snippet of one of the songs they sang, I'm going to treat you to an adorable song - complete with Aiden sitting on the ground eating. Isabella was in my arms clinging for dear life lest I go near the stage.
