One of our favorite Advent traditions is Come to Bethlehem and this year we had several friends join us to journey to Bethlehem. That day during our Advent time I handed the girls a big envelope covered in candy canes (because really there are no sugar intake rules during the month of December as my now very snug jeans can attest to) with the tickets inside and they squealed and jumped up and down as soon as they realized what it meant. I'm such a sucker for their joy and excitement!!
Mary is visited by the angel. The girl's faces is my absolute fave.
Abishai was very amused by the live sheep with the shepherds
It was definitely one of our favorite nights of Advent this year made better because new friends were there to celebrate with us.
