Church Dinner & Nativity

What a lovely evening !  Sister Terry and I worked together to organize a nativity with the kids for our Church Christmas potluck. Anthony played Joseph, Keisha played Mary, Ana play our Angel and Liam was one of the Shepherds.  We also had 3 Wise men, another Shepherd, an owl, a goat, a lamb, a chicken and an adult narrator.

The food was so abundant and beautiful.......

Despite so many options, my funny boy chose 5 dill pickle & a slice of ham.....:)

I Love that Ana kept her halo on........:))
