Live Nativity

I guess every year on Bishop Aston's farm they do this live nativity but I hadn't ever been before. It was cold, but really nice. Our boys loved it.

You walk from place to place looking for Mary, Jospeh, and Baby Jesus.

As we were walking away from the angels and could see in the distance the stable with the star over it. Layton said very quietly "Im so excited to see who's in there"

The boys have heard the Christmas Story several times but after this Layton finally got it, now he can remember the names and what happened. It really came to life for him.

If anyone has a chance to go to a live nativity do it (assuming it is as amazing as the Ashton's!)

That is so cool! :) I love it when things click in a child's mind like that. Oh, it really makes you feel the spirit of Christmas.
