Neighborhood Nativity

For the past several years, our neighborhoood has put on a live nativity performance.  The mom's serve Christmas cookies, hot cocoa and then everyone goes caroling around the are towed in a trailer behind a golf cart, of course! This is our 1st Christmas here, so it was all new to us.  Miss Paula asked if my boys wanted to be the Shepherd and a sheep, and much to my surprise (Bryce does NOT like to dress in costume!) they said yes!

The Wisemen

Joseph and Mary 
 The girls choir

 The Angel, Shepherd & sheep!

They did a beautiful job telling the story of Jesus' birth.  They sang a few songs and then at the end, the whole crowd sang Happy Birthday to Jesus.  It was so sweet and very touching to see everyone involved.  I'm very proud of our little children and our neigbhorhood for making this a tradition!  Bryce & Drew are already talking about next year!

Spreading Christmas Joy

The boys and I get 18 days off for our Christmas break.  We are SO excited to spend time together without the rush of school, homework, jobs, etc!

One day this week we baked a bunch of different Christmas goodies.

And delivered them to our neighbors on the golf cart.

The boys loved running up to each house, ringing the bell and saying, "Merry Christmas...we're glad you're our neighbors!"  They thought it was much more fun than trick-or-treating!!!  I think we'll make this an annual tradition.

Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
