Living Nativity

We got to go to a living Nativity in our community. It is really something! I can't believe how much work goes into putting this on. I hope each of the volunteers receives a special blessing for their efforts. In addition to the stable, they had a market place in the town of Bethlehem. It was incredible! It takes about an hour to walk through everything. The best part is that it all points to Jesus being the Messiah.
Josiah is petting the frozen fish in the fish market. It was so cold outside. I give extra props to those volunteers who had to work outdoors.

Hailey is rockin' out in Hadessah's home.

The Carpenter's shop was busy that night. It was so neat because they had all kind of different trades people doing demonstrations of how they did things the old way. There was a potter, candle maker, wool dyer, weaver, baker, basket maker, metal worker, temple, synagogue, etc. The kids got to go around to each of the booths and collect a sticker to complete the Christmas story. It is just the neatest idea.

Hailey wasn't too happy about petting the lamas. Last year the wise men had a real camel, but the camel couldn't get here this year because of the bad roads.

That is so amazing. I wish they had something like that here. They have a small one in Wishram, but I don't like going through the Wishram Curves in the snow and ice.

Wow - I would have loved to see this! We'll have to check it out next year if we make it home for Christmas!
