St. Joseph School Choir Sung at St. Joseph Church #Christmas2017

The St. Joseph Choir sung beautifully during the mass at St. Joseph church.  Mrs. Bernardi really did a great job in  coordinating all of these songs with the group of students.  I think masses are extra special when the choir are children, would you agree?
I don't go out  right away after the mass because I love taking pictures of the kids after the celebration.  Here's our daughter with her friends.  These lovely girls will be in 8th grade  next school year,, whew, where did the time go?  I can still remember the very first day I dropped my daughter off to school in kindergarten, I felt sick to m,y stomach as I walked away from school.  
The  church was well decorated for the season.  Lots of  beautiful poinsettia and a big nativity scene alongside a tall Christmas tree. 
The choir was  required to come  an hour early so they could practice before the mass starts.  I don't know how  the music teach can pull this amazing performances because they only have little time to practice with their  recess from here and there.  I really admire her  patience and  dedication in putting this all together.
These kind of performances really give the children boost of   confidence in performing in public setting.
My little guy look so handsome with his attire.  This little man is turning eleven years old in few weeks.  Whenever I shop for his Christmas gifts, I also shop for his birthday presents.  He said it is his favorite time of the year because after the Christmas presents, he will get  birthday presents a couple of weeks after that.
I think that sending  our children to a  small school has it's advantages.  Most of the kids are close and they get along so well.
Our son was  complaining about  me taking so much pictures after the mass lol.  I couldn't keep him to pose  for me.
Glad our daughter is up to it.  It's amazing how some of them got so tall and big all of the sudden.  Our daughter said that she's the only one that's not growing lol.  I told, it might be a good thing.  
They were friends  since kindergarten so they are very  close.  We did not send our children to pre school, I chose to teach them at home all of the basic that they could learn going to school at  that age.  I think we did good on that, they are both smart and seemed to not miss anything by not going to preschool in school.
Ahhh one more year and I will have a high school student.  
It was hard  recording a video since we were seated at the back but here are some of the videos.  The parochial priest, Fr. Dennis, started the mass by singing the Alleluia.  
Hark the Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
I hope that all of you had a great Christmas.  I wish you all a joyous and prosperous new year.  May it bring  good health and  lots of joy to your home and personal lives!
