Christmas Eve

God has certainly been gracious to us.
We played a game as a family. There are 8 of us so we had 8 characters from the Bible Christmas story: Mary, Joseph, shepherd, wise man, donkey, King Herod, sheep, star. We each drew one and then had about 5 minutes to run and make a costume. Funny thing was that Kevin ended up being Mary and I was Joseph!!
Steven was the star and Caleb was a sheep.
Teresa was a wise man (riding on James' big reindeer for a camel), James was a donkey with a rope for a tail, Billy was King Herod complete with brandishing sword, Scheri was the shepherd (but in the above picture she left her staff in the capable hands of her sheep) so she could snap the photo.
We played another Bible-related game and read those timeless passages from Matthew 2 and Luke 2. I think the kids were even surprised at how fun it was.
