Nativity scene sheep steals baby Jesus in adorable Christmas play

WHITE PINE, Tenn. - An adorable Nativity scene in an East Tennessee church took a hilarious turn when the little girl playing a sheep decided to play with baby Jesus.

At the First Baptist Church of White Pine, the kids of their live Nativity scene stole the show, but not for the reason you may think.

While the children's choir sang "Away In A Manger" the scene began to unravel. 

The sheep, played by Tana Benson's little girl, Teegan, got up, took baby Jesus out of the manger and began to play with the doll on stage.

Laughter could be heard from parents and audience members as she continued to play and dance with the doll.

Yet, it wasn't until the little girl playing Mary decided to take matters into her own hands and take the doll back.

She and the sheep struggled for a brief moment, before Mary was able to get the doll back in the manger.

Benson said in her Facebook post, that has since gone viral, that she laughed until she cried.
