Scott as Joseph
No costumes this year for some reason. Baby Seth crawled over and picked up the Baby Jesus.
He wanted to give him a hug.
The Shepherds: Spencer & Shane
Shayla & Sam as Mary & Joseph
Siara, Shanna and Sam: The Very Happy Wiseman
Seth in the very dramatic role of Shepherd: "And he was sore afraid"
Shayla was the angel that year.
Sometimes the Shepherds got into boxing matches
Shane the Ninja Shepherd
This particular year the youngsters made the point that the angel was a guy,
so in the interest of authenticity, Spencer took on the role of Angel.
I like to think (hope) that somewhere amongst all the chaos going on those Christmas Eves, our children were learning the story of the Savior's humble beginnings, and getting the idea of what Christmas is really about.
