Tis the season

With the complete randomness of snow today, I thought I would blog about all of our Christmas ongoings.  Our church held two events that we attended to help get us in the Christmas spirit.   The first was a visit from Santa Claus.  Our two were not very impressed.



For the second event, Kai and I attended a Night in Bethlehem.  It was a night spent recreating the environment of the time when Jesus was born.  We made perfume by grinding spices together, we kneaded dough to make bread, we made toys out of "clay" and got to ride a donkey and pet a camel.  It was a lot of fun.   

 

We have yet to put lights up outside, but our tree was decorated by Kai (we had to redistribute the ornaments just a little)


I still have a lot of shopping to do and we have a few more parties to attend before the big day, but so far, this is shaping up to be a pretty good holiday season.
