December 24, 2012

Elder Hunter presented an amazing Irish dance.  His "back-up dancers" are Elders Law, Green and Larsen.

Elder Faulkner was our MC again this year.  He kept us in stitches with his imitations of President Smart and various missionaries in our mission, and others.

Elder Coleman accompanies Elder Snyder as he sings "The Christmas Story."

Elder Albright plays a brilliant piano solo that he composed himself.

Sister Ferry, Sister Jensen, Sister Griffin, Sister Chevalier and Sister Larsen sing "Los Pecesenel Rio."

Another picture of the sisters' entertaining performance!

Elder Fielding plays an excellent performance of "If You Could Hie to Kolob," on his ocarina.
Sister Moeai performs a beautiful Polynesian Dance

We loved Elder Hanks and his astonishing juggling act!

The whole Redlands Zone sang their own witty rendition of "Sleigh Ride."

Sister Jones played her "fiddle" and Sister Christensen played, well, I'm not exactly sure what is was, but it sounded similar to a kazoo, and they both really had the crowd going!

Elder Webster and Elder Mason sing an enjoyable and entertaining version of "Angels We Have Heard on High."

Sister Muni plays a beautiful and soulful number on her cello.

Elder Brantley, Elder Ramos and Elder Laparra entertain us with their number called "Pray to Know."

Elder Craig and Elder Buckley workin' the crowd!

Sister Fankhauser sings "Love is Christmas," accompanied by Elder Coleman with Sister Waters as the Music Holder.
Elder Kaneao entertains the crowd with his rendition of "Today I Feel Like Being a Missionary."

Our Polynesian Elders perform the Haku for us!

Santa and his elf pass out the Christmas packages!
