This was an absolutely awesome Christmas for our family. As everyone knows, we were spending Christmas alone. I hate to say alone because we are never alone when we have a Lord and Savior who is with us all the time.
I wanted to make this special for my children but also special for Daddy and me. About two weeks before Christmas we started practicing a play that I found online about the birth of Jesus. We worked on it two or three times a day and really wanted to make it special for Daddy.
Well it turned out to be special for Mommy too.
About a week before Christmas we went to a fabric store and bought scraps of fabric for our costumes. I was very proud of myself for being creative on a small budget. Don't they all look the part.
The baby was supposed to be a wise man but wanted to hang out with Dad instead of do her part but that was o.k. because we still had a great time.
My oldest was Joseph and a wise man, the next in line was Mary, the next in line was the innkeepers son and a wise man, the next in line was the Angel, the next in line was the shepherd and the baby was a wise man who didn't cooperate.
That is all right because we had a great time and a great Christmas. We have also decided that we will do this every year from now on and remember that we are blessed to have such a loving God who gave us such an awesome gift that Christmas night.
