I love this nativity. It's so peaceful!
On Sunday, my mom had tickets to something new this year called "A Night in Bethlehem" My parent's next door neighbors own a reception/community center and they set up the building to look like Bethlehem. There were little shops with basket weaving, animals, bread making, etc. They have you go into another room and they do a really cool program. They tell the story of the birth of Christ and have you join in singing some songs. At the end, all the little kids get to walk up to the front and see the baby Jesus. That was so sweet. For the night in Bethlehem, you are supposed to dress up. We all had fun trying different things on to look the part. Ryder was so cute in this little robe :) I love this time of year because of all the time spent with family and so many fun traditions!
Trying to get a toddler to sit still when they don't want to... never works out!
