Surprising Christmas

(Almost) five-year-old Annie initiated the idea and executed the costuming for this Nativity Tableau, staring Annie as Mary, Paul as Joseph and Fiona Dolly standing in for the Baby Jesus.

During the silent performance, I reflected on one of Annie’s made-up Christmas songs.  “Jesus was born in Bethlehem,” she sang, “and Mary was so…surprised.”  —Sue Edison-Swift
