On Christmas night, after we ate dinner, Debbie had a special treat in store for us. She ushered all the children upstairs with the help of Stacey, David and Tina, and told all of us to sit tight.
About a half hour later, we hear some rumbling on the steps and get a peek at what Debbie has in store for us...
Our very own "cousin" nativity! She had all of the children costumed for their parts and had Aunt Stacey read the Christmas Story from the Bible. How precious!
And, while we were one person short...which meant we were out a wise man...we were also down a wise man...
Owen decided to protest instead of participate.
Callen wasn't really sure what Leo was doing in the basket. I guess she's a little young to understand Jesus in the manger.
Carter, although a participant, was a bit of a reluctant one. David came downstairs before the children descended and told me that he thought Carter looked a bit like Yo.da. Then he said, "Don't tell him, though. I had to tell him it made him look like Buzz Light.year to get him to put it on."
My Angel! Don't be fooled, she didn't leave that halo on for very long!
Thanks Debbie for a wonderful, fitting end to celebrating Christmas!
