The pageant was written and directed by Allison Ballentine.
Bryon Rivers had the lead role.
Tiffany Vincent and her husband Chad played the parts of Mary and Joseph. Six-week-old Coen was baby Jesus.
The highlight of the production, for me, was realizing that Ellie Bauer was part of it. So much has gone on with her and so many prayers have been offered. Her being there was a special moment.
