Plus, it hasn't helped my blogging, that my computer has yet another virus and not working hardly at all! Man, I feel like we are falling apart over here.
So back to last Friday...John, Amy and girls came and we all went to a Chapel in Bellevue. There... many different churches put together a Nativity Display. Jeff and I and our neighbors went last year and couldn't believe how well done it was, and promised that we would bring the girls next year.
There were so many things to do, especially for the girls...which was a great way to teach them about the Christmas Season. They really loved it and of course their Nana did too!
I love Christmas, I love sharing the story of Jesus from His birth and His life to the kids. How grateful I am for soooo many people to be willing to share their time, talents and their Nativities with the public and touch as many hearts as they did. It truly brought us the Christmas Spirit!
There were 550 Nativities, some made from all over the world!

Here we all were being able to do our own live Nativity. I was a Shepherd trying to control a very WILD SHEEP named Audrey! ( just in case you were wondering )
The perfect Angel...Miss Jenny! This truly was a photo that showed the real girl inside!
The rooms and displays were amazing!
After spending an hour there, John, Amy and Audrey headed home. The older girls went with us to have a Sleep Over. On the way home we looked at Christmas lights and then headed to bed. We read a new book called The Night before the Night before Christmas! Fun!
The next morning we got up early so we could go to our church's Christmas Breakfast!
Before Santa's arrival and after a Christmas Breakfast, the kids were able to go back to the tables and make candy ornaments or beaded ornaments. Angie didn't even want to stop and eat breakfast, but just wanted to keep crafting. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree does it?

A dear friend of ours gave the girls a gingerbread house to decorate.
Finished our Gingerbread house, so fun! Thanks Sarah!
Christmas Jar...counting it finally and the grand total was $53.08, the girls were excited!
Next we get to go shopping for our Secret Friend!
