This year we acted out the Nativity story on Christmas Eve. Jakson was very adamant that he was not going to participate. Too much pretend. We at least convinced him that he should be in the same room with the rest of us. Zak stepped in as the part of Joseph and Storey was all over the part of Mary. She was very cute and reverent the whole time. Of course, Grandpa took his usual role as the donkey.
My brother, Jon, read the account from Luke aloud. He was able to "trick" Jakson into participating by asking him to help read the words of the angel. It was great, though Jakson denies having any part.
Oh well. There's always next year.
