The Best Christmas Pageant Ever..Part ll

I finally got around to taking the rest of the pics and managed to finish Darren's costume. However, we are still short another Wise Man- Officer Mike is waiting to be fitted for that costume. But the show must go on! So I will probably end up finishing his costume and packing it away for next year. I have had a very busy last 24-36 hours- Don't ask! but decided the dolls must have their schedules adhered to!lol....So here is Part ll of the Best Christmas Pageant EVER....


The cast of the Nativity pageant have silently taken their places, and the lights are dimmed. Some of the lambs the shepherds are holding bah complacently (they were bottle fed before the performance) and the donkey brays now and then. Darren as one of the Wise Men, moves forward, kneels and presents one of the gifts to Mary, Joseph and the Baby begins to play in the background.

Behind Darren, Miss Charlotte's kindgergarden class, adorably dressed like elves, toy soldiers, Christmas trees and gingerbread men, begin to sing Silent Night. Miss Charlotte and Mrs. Greene quietly direct the children in their singing. The Audience is spellbound, sitting in the cold air, and hearing the children's voices raised in song. Soon, they begin to join in the singing as well.

Many people have standing room since all of the seats have been taken, but no one minds, not even the Baroness Von Weiss, who has also come to see the Nativity pageant. All the dolls in Barbietown have come together, to remember the real reason for the season, Christ's birth.

Santa Claus has even stopped off after a full day of collecting donations for the Salvation Army, and stopped by to wait for the pageant to be over so he can let the children tell him on Christmas eve what they want for Christmas. Above is a full shot from the back of the audience to the stage. This makes a wonderful end of Christmas Eve, and a great beginning for the day tomorrow full of food, lots of family time, and opening of the Christmas presents, and going to church.

Meanwhile, back at the Mansion, the Baroness' guests and family are putting last minute touches on the tree in anticipation of the wonderful Christmas supper and party she is having. Agnes's cousin, Lady Agatha directs the men hanging the ornaments at the top and her cousin who is in her santa Christmas pj's hanging the ornaments on the bottom of the tree. Her cute Scottish terrier she brought with her, Angus, wags his tail eagerly for a treat.

From all the residents of Barbietown, and myself, have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!         ~~Lisa
