My little donkey and beautiful angels

Our church ward family had a super fun Christmas party 10 days ago.  It was a good time.  We didn't stick with tradition, and went with a pasta bar this year with breadsticks, brownies, and ice cream.  Santa couldn't make it, and it was just fine with my kids because they were able to be a part of the Nativity story along with the rest of the Primary age kids.

It was so cute when Mary and Joseph came out and walked across the stage, followed by Emmitt the donkey.  The congregation (all the parents and teenagers) giggled because Emmitt was so tickled to be there!

 Kelsey and Kendal were angels, along with the rest of the girls.

After the Nativity Story was retold and reenacted from the Bible, all the kids sang us a few Christmas songs and carols.  They were so cute and so so great.
My kids loved participating in the historic story of the birth of our Savior.  They were so pleased to be able to share their love of Christmas and of the baby Jesus with their friends by song and acting.  We have truly enjoyed the true meaning and reason for Christmas this year.
It's has been a wonderful way for their love of the Savior to grow.

 Merry Christmas to all.

I really meant to change the donkey's shirt so he would be wearing something brown or gray, but it was a little stressful night! As we were warming all the pasta and sauces, we blew EVERY outlet in the half of the church we were in! AHHH!! So I apologize for the Batman shirt on the donkey! My girls wore some of my civil war chemises - worked perfectly!
