Operation Holly Pics

This year the Children of Praise put on a performance of Bows of Holly. I am blessed to have a wonderful friend, HollyBren, who shared her pictures with me. My camera decided to play hide-and-seek, waah. So, HollyBren, who did NOT have the play named after her per Bro. Booker, took some awesome pictures of my kids, as well as the rest of COP, and I will share them now with you!
Holly and her crew during one of the rehearsals
Holly was played by Destinee Martin
and Jessica was Molly

The Children of Praise Choir
Look! It snowed inside ILC!!!

Molly and Holly had a minor disagreement over who should be in charge and
what the name of the Operation should be called.
Holly! Molly! Holly!! Molly!!

Zachary Garrett as David
He looks hard at work, doesn't he?

The Gang of Needy Kids who are getting
ready to go and partake of Holly's stash of goodies!
It's not stealing...They "need-y" them!

Holly has discovered the thievery! Woe is she!!!
Molly is trying to determine what happened.
Holly is upset that her "rep" will be damaged.
She even has a Fan Club and thinks she may lose it.

David, Molly and the other workers look for clues as to who took the food and toys.
Hmmm...look at this newspaper has a map drawn on it...
Let's see where it leads!

The Gang is having a blast after absconding with the food and toys.
They were 'light on their feet, they go with the flow'
(words to a "rap" style song they sang as they committed their crime)

Check out the hairdo!!! Nate was one of the Gang leaders!

Justin played Brad, one of the gang.
He was worried about getting caught and being taken to juvie.
Jessica as Molly during a scene.
Beautiful JessiBear!!

Jessi and Zach listening to Holly as she get ready to confront the gang.
They reminded her about being a blessing and letting your light shine to ALL the world.

Singing about letting your light shine.
Holly confronts the gang. However, she realizes that she should forgive and show God's mercy and grace to these kids.
Brad is happy he isn't going to juvie!!
Miss Emily Thomas
Miss Vanessa Sanchez in the stripes

Miss Amanda Thomas....isn't she a doll?
