A preschool Nativity scene in Tennessee had a hilarious twist – the sheep stole baby Jesus and Mary had to intervene. And the drama was all caught on video.
Tana Benson of First Baptist Church of White Pine, Tenn., shared a video of what happened when her 2-year-old daughter, Teegan Benson AKA the sheep, reached into the manger and took the doll representing baby Jesus. Teegan started dancing with the doll to “Away in a Manger,” according to USA Today, and the 3-year-old girl playing Mary then jumped into action and got baby Jesus back.
But, the sheep struck again and grabbed the baby from the manger a second time. That’s when Mary put the sheep in a headlock and an adult stepped in.
And yes, the sheep’s mom posted on Facebook that she laughed so hard she cried.
“Another mom, the angel’s mom, and I were sitting there saying, ‘Oh my gosh, do we go up there? Do we stop them, what do we do?'” she told WBIR.com of Knoxville. “And with tears in my eyes I said, ‘No, I think it’ll just make it worse. We’ll just wait till they’re done.'”

My little sheep took the baby Jesus, breaking all the rules leaving poor little Mary no choice but to take action! Momma to the rescue tried her best to protect her baby at all costs. Definitely a program I will remember. LOVE these kiddos and my church family! Laughed so hard I cried!
