Christmas is like 5 days away...wow, it sure is going fast. This is the Christmas week. The holiday starts today at our house. We had friends come in for breakfast, we went to see the Children’s Christmas museum, where different churches made little scenes from the bible period, around when Jesus was born. Girls really enjoyed it, especially the little 'angels'. I think they wished they were dressed like that.
There were roman soldiers... here is one with my oldest.
There were the wise men, the shepherds and also there were a lot of animals, goats, sheep, and rabbits. I guess when Jesus was born there were a lot of animals around him.
A lot of pictures didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, but some still will capture the memories for my girls. My girls said that they saw a 'real' Jesus, laying in 'real Mary's' arms. It sure is interesting to explain to them that its not real, but that Jesus was born long ago, but now this is just what people are dressed as Mary and Joseph, soldiers, and shepherds. That now we need to let Jesus be born in our hearts so He can live there and then we will be able to live with Him forever. It is a wonderful privilege for us to know that when we give our hearts to Jesus, we are going to be with him in heaven, and that nothing in this life can compare to what awaits us there.... I love it.
