Here are a few more pictures.
We were lucky enough to be able to attend "A Walk Through Bethlehem" put on by the Woodmont Christian Church. The line was long and it was crowded once we were inside, but the educational value was immense. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas as Jesus' birth, I would encourage you to take your family to this event, just to learn more about life in Bible times.
Below is a picture of Joseph, Mary, and "baby Jesus."
We enjoyed a "Grinch Day" at school in the lower elementary. Here are some of us with our Grinch shirts!
Mark's birthday is December 13. We bought an ice cream cake for him. John didn't exactly tell Mark what we bought for him, but he did say, "Don't look in the freezer, Dad!"
Once school was out, we had more time for other projects. I bought a pre-assembled gingerbread house at Walmart and the kids decorated it. We even used some leftover Halloween candy on it!
The kids love crafts and they love making presents for others. Here they are hard at work on some things for the grandparents.
Thanks for reading! Merry Christmas!
