After dinner, and prior to the nativity, we calmed everyone down by watching "Mr. Krueger's Christmas." That's always a good one.
Then we congregated in the living room.
Abigail was an adorable shepherd. Benjamin kindly agreed to participate as long as he didn't have to dress up or participate. He got to narrate the Christmas story from the scriptures. Kimberly played the piano.
|Nana's makeshift manger was pretty impressive and must have been pretty comfortable.|
Then the children were sent to bed while the parents cleaned the kitchen and prepped the house for Christmas day. It was exciting and exhausting. We were all glad when it was our turn to enjoy a few hours of sleep.
