Nativity Play

The kids have begun a tradition of putting together a little family Nativity play each year close to Christmas. I believe this is the fifth year running.

This year's play was excellent, as always, and—for the first time—we had a photographer (Miss Anna Marie) putting together some nice cast shots prior to the play. (Yes, Lucia—who appears not to have a cast photo—took the starring role as Baby Jesus.)

What a high-quality play the seven Leone kids performed for us this year, complete with program and great costumes—all found in closets and dress-up buckets.

William as Angel Gabriel
Therese, as the Blessed Virgin Mary
Therese and Andrew, as Mary and Joseph, headed to Bethlehem.

Shepherd Marguerite 
Marguerite adores Baby Jesus.
A shepherd and her many lambs (in interesting array).
Marguerite (double-cast) as the Star of Bethlehem.
That is one shiny, happy star.
Andrew as St. Joseph, letting the donkey rest.
William, as the Christmas angel.
