Our Merry Christmas

My favorite part about Christmas is acting out the Nativity on Christmas Eve. We had a great group this year. Eden was in charge of assigning all the parts. I had borrowed some great clothes for costumes. We were set. Here is the story of the night in pictures.

We told Teya to go get dressed for the party. She came downstairs a few minutes later wearing her 'party' dress.
Megan was Mary and she ran out just as the play was supposed to start and came running back in with a towel in her belly to make her look pregnant. (Dave is always the donkey...)
Here is one of my favorite photos -- the shepherds are 'sore afraid' of the angel they saw!

Here is the whole 'cast' at the end of the night!

And, in case you didn't notice in the above picture, here is our 'baby Jesus'. (We couldn't find a single doll in our entire house). This is what Eden came up with for the play. Teya really had a hard time sharing her neon green care bear with everyone that night.

Hope your Christmas was a Merry one!

How fun! The Nativity play is always a favorite at our house. No doll though? We have about twenty five. My girls always want a doll for Christmas even though we have a ton of them. Fun memories though.
