WIPP Christmas Program 2014

Thank you to everyone who helped to make our Christmas program such a success.  Thank you also to everyone who sent in cookies for our Cookie Party.  All of the leftovers are being donated as dessert to People Helping People, who will be feeding the homeless this Sunday in Forsyth Park at 12:45.   Thanks to Mrs. Knudsen for taking care of this!

Merry Christmas!















Christmas Program Songs!

We've been practicing our songs for our Christmas program--and getting ready to perform in front of everybody on Friday, December 19, at 9:15 in the Sanctuary.  Here are the words to all of the songs that we all sing together.  You might have heard us singing some of these already at home, but now you can sing along with us!


Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 Twinkle, twinkle little star   (Hold up hands and open/shut fingers.)
 How I wonder what you are  (Hold hands to the side as if asking a question.)
Up above the world so high  (Point up.)
Like a diamond in the sky   (Make a diamond with hands.)

Twinkle twinkle little star    (same as above)
How I wonder what you are   (same as above)  


Mary Had a Baby Boy (tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)  (Pretend to hold baby Jesus and rock him.)

Wise men saw the star and answered,  (Point up in the air.)
“I love you.”   (Cross arms over chest.)
Shepherds heard the angels singing,  (Cup hand to ear.)

Knock, Knock, Knock Went Joseph
Knock, knock, knock, went Joseph at the inn in Bethlehem.  (Pretend to knock on a door)
Can you shelter a family and be a big help to them?   (Hold hands to the side as if asking a question.)
"No room, no room," said the man in Bethlehem.   (Shake one finger back and forth slowly.)
"No room, no room," said the man in Bethlehem.    (Shake one finger back and forth slowly.)

Knock, knock, knock, went Joseph at the stable door so bright.  (Pretend to knock on door.)

"Come in, come in,"said the beasts of Bethlehem.     (Make a welcoming gesture with hands.)

We also invite the audience to join us in singing the refrain to  We Wish You a Merry Christmas at the end of the program.

And a Happy New Year!

Sleigh Ride

Thanks so much to Billy's grandfather of Gold Leaf Carriages (http://www.goldleafcarriage.com/) who brought his horses, Kate and Pearl, down to Savannah to give us all a ride in a two-horse open sleigh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride...

In a two-horse open sleigh!
