Merry Christmas!

Hello Everyone and a belated Merry Christmas! Sorry its been a while since I've posted, but here I am! I've really been enjoying the Holidays, spending lots of time with family and friends! At the end of November I decided I wanted to squeeze every bit of joy out of December that I could and I sure have! I only wish that I could be with more of you! One of the first Christmas activities that I did was go to A Candlelight Christmas at This is the Place Heritage Park. I had a really good time and highly recommend it to everyone, especially those with children. Very, very fun! Here are a few pictures.

This part of the live Nativity. I really liked how they did it. There was a path you had to go on and their were shepherds along the path with fires going. When you came to the last one, he asked if we came seeking the Christ Child and then led us the rest of the way to the barn. When he entered, he knelt before the baby Jesus. It made it feel very sacred. I almost didn't take a picture, because it somehow felt inappropriate. There were lots of animals in the stalls.

This is Ileana and mom on the train that takes you around the village. They even provided blankets because it was verrrrry chilly!!

Jackie and Stephen and myself up in the front of the train. (I look a little strange.)

Ileana and Stephen participating in an old-fashion dance at the School House. There was a little band there and it was very festive!

At Brigham Young's house the kids could write letters to Father Christmas. Then, we could take them to him in the barn and get your picture taken with him. There were reindeer there while you waited in line. I couldn't believe how big they were!
There were crafts for kids in about six different houses and carolers in the streets and a puppet show and several other fun things. I would love to go back!
