Christmas Eve Nativity







Every Christmas Eve our family puts on the Nativity. All the different parts of the Nativity are put into a bowl and then each person draws the part they are going to play that year. They are then given 10 minutes to dig through the house to put their costume together. Depending how many people we have with us on Christmas Eve, determines how many parts are added to the bowl. This year it was just our family so the only parts included were ... the Narrator, Mary, Joseph, a Shepherd, an angel, and a Wiseman. In past years every part was included as well animals. (One year Kassie was one of the sheep and Tavin was the coveted donkey.) This year Kim was the Narrator ... Kassie was the Angel ... Tom was a Wiseman ... Brittin was a Shepherd ... Tavin was Joseph ... and much to Belle's disappointment ... she was Mary. She was so upset about her part that when we were taking pictures of her doing her part ... she would turn her back to the camera. haha Even with some Nativity "drama" ... it is a fun tradition that we will continue even as our family grows bigger.
