Today at church, Kayci and Noble (and the other kids at church) dressed up and sang "Go Tell It On the Mountain."
Kayci and Mommygirl made a white tutu for Kayci and a halo out of garland. We borrowed some angel wings from a friend and her costume was complete. It's not tough to make Kayci look like an angel.
But the real challenge was Noble.
When they started practicing the song at church a few weeks ago, he came home and said that he was going to be a wise man. When asked what a wise man wore, he said "you know, a cape, wike a superhero." He had it in his mind that a wise man was a superhero and that he should wear a cape.
We tried and tried to convince him that a wise man should dress like he dressed when he dressed up like Joseph at school. But to no avail. So Kristi - being the best Mommy ever - bought him a cape to wear.
Then - yesterday - a stroke of brilliance! If we could convince him to wear a crown, the cape might be okay. Success!!! So Noble wore a red superhero cape and a gold crown, a Cars tie and carried a box painted gold. Apparently, the wise men brought gold bricks...
Here is some video if the kids singing from two different angles:
