Christmas Eve

We have the tradition, as most of you probably do too, to act out the nativity on Christmas Eve. This year in addition to that we sat on a blanket in the living room around a lazy susan and enjoyed a dinner that Jesus might have eaten in his day (olives, bread, cheese, grapes, dates, etc). We ate by the light of my mother-in-laws Christmas tree and shared our favorite stories about Jesus. It was really fun. Then we acted out the nativity. I was going to describe it, but I'll let the pictures tell the story
This is Mary (Aunt Whitney--due in June), and Jovis (this is what Lanny called Joseph when he was a wee one). I can't figure out why Joseph can't just look normal...ever?!

These are the shepherds, abiding in the kitchen, they love chocolate!

The beautiful angels bringing glad tidings of joy! Just a note, Grandma came up with the beautiful costumes. I came up with the ones that aren't so great...yeah, not my forte!

This wiseman is actually scaring me, he's a bit too serious.

The three wisemen, gangstas, mafia, or rappers, you choose. But....they're bearing gifts!

My crew...a bit rag tag, but we still seek Him.

My little shepherd/gangsta was so exctied and just happy to be a part!
