Judah learning the Christmas story!

I love that Judah has been learning how to retell the Christmas story very very simply this year:
Angel says "No No be afraid"
Mary will have a  baby!
Mary rides the donkey
Angel says "No No be afraid "to the shepherds
does various animal sounds
Wise men see the Star
Follow the star
Give baby Jesus gifts!
Yay Baby Jesus!
Something like this!

Today we acted it out and we sang a fun Christmas song with actions!
We Wish You a Merry Christmas Action Song
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year.
Now let’s all do a little clapping (clap),
Now let’s all do a little clapping (clap),
Now let’s all do a little clapping (clap),
And spread Christmas cheer (raise arms above head).
Now let’s all do a little jumping (jump)
Now let’s all do a little hopping (hop)
Now let’s all do a little whirling (spin around)
Now let’s all do a little stretching (stretch up high)
Now let’s all do a little dancing (dance)
Now let’s all do a little waving (wave)
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year.

This pretty much sums up by 15th month of life haha!
