Christmas performances....

There was no shortage of Christmas activities for the Aarons...

Rayna's class was invited to perform some Christmas songs (in Spanish) at a theater in Rota. It was her first field trip on a bus! Johann took the day off and we trailed the bus to see the show...

Here she is jumping off the bus to perform!

And here is why we didn't get to see her sing...

Because apparently, the city invited 5 other schools to perform and those parents, grandparents, cousins, friends and neighbors had already filled up the auditorium before we even arrived.

None of the American parents got in... But, we were told by Rayna's teachers that she was a star, which I don't doubt for a minute! We were also promised a Spring performance, so we'll have to wait for that one...

Reese's class also held a longtime invitation to perform at a Convalescent Home in El Puerto de Santa Maria. Apparently for years and years the 2nd Graders of the base visit this Home and the people were so excited to see them!

Reese's class sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and Feliz Navidad, of course! Reese choreographed the moves to Rudolph and Frosty and taught them to the rest of her class! Ms. Boswell confided in me that Reese is a very talented little girl and I should be very proud! (and I AM!)

(She's below in the middle in the white shirt and blue pants)

And both girls were a part of the Children's Christmas Program at the Chapel on base. Reese played the angel Gabriel and gave the Luke 1 announcement to Mary! Rayna was also an angel, but informed us that she didn't want to say anything, but wanted to just, "stand there and look pretty"... LOL

Well, they both did a great job! And I believe Jesus was glorified by our celebration of His gift to us of coming to earth and redeeming us to Himself!

Here's Reese as Gabriel! She learned her lines in about 2 days! You'll see Mary have to wrestle the mic from her! Hahaha

Merry Christmas/ Feliz Navidad
