Recap

On Friday we went out for Pizza and to Night in Bethlehem at our church. It was so awesome. The girls had a great time. Our church was transformed into the village of Bethlehem. There was an area where you could have your pictures taken with an angel or a shepherd. The girls love anything dress up so this was fun for them. They dressed up like Mary and Joseph and had a great time. I wish I had my camera for this...they absolutely crack me up! In the Family Life Center, was the actual "town". There was a place for the girls to make a clay pot and see an actual potters wheel. I think I liked this stop the best...reminded me of Color Your World...kind of! The next stop was the candy store where the girls could pick out their favorite kind of hard tack candy. They liked this stop the best - imagine that! We traveled on to the bread store where we got a piece of bread and then we went on to the Tin shop where we made a candle holder out of tin...it was noisy but a lot of fun! Next we went on to the card making station where the kids made cards to be presented at the temple. They put smelly fragrance on the cards and Aiva thought that was the coolest thing about this stop. Once we left the temple we stopped over to see the live animals. They had live sheep, goats and even a baby cow. SO much fun. Ana was determined to get to the cow but she was unsuccessful! She could only look from afar! While we were there we also made a necklace, played dreidel and got to see the baby Jesus. It made me remember back to when Aiva and Ana played baby Jesus the years that they were born. Time has gone so fast and the time had come to hand off the swaddling cloths and manager! Such a sweet memory! After it was over we headed home and read the Christmas story and it was off to bed for two tired little girls. We had a great evening!
