Christmas Around the World

Ethaniel looking so cute in his Chinese costumes. He said that he looked u.g.l.y.
And all of us disagreed! Everybody thought that he looked so cute.

I am so proud of both of my children for participating in The Christmas Around the World play yesterday at church.

Actually, Ethaniel has been soooooooo shy about joining. Of course I was in shock and disbelief. He is usually the life-of-a-party boy. Often entertaining us. Surely this is a side of him I have not seen.

How does he become The Entertainer now and then The Shy Boy the next.

Of course, like any smart Mummy who-knows-her-son-best, I whipped out my tactic to get him to cooperate... a lot of threats (which did not work) and then ... one gum ball, one lollipop and a cup of Slurpee.

That did the job!

Since they did not attend most of the practices, they had minor roles but they still had a blast and it was a great experience.

(will post some more pictures later)

A gum ball, one lollipop and a cup of Slurpee sound like too hard to resist for a kid. LOL!
