Live Nativity

This Christmas season we were wanting to find new and fun things to do as a family. Some friends of our told us about this Live Nativity which is held in Alpine. We found out when and where it was held and on a very cold Saturday night we ventured out. We were really impressed! It was such a unique experience. We loved it so much we went back with Craig's family on Monday night. It was much more crowded but not as cold Monday. I was glad to go back because I forgot my camera the first time we went. Check out some of our photos...I think it will be something that we will go to for many years to come.
Craig, Liberty & Brit by the dancing camel.
This was the dancing camel...seriously he rocked back and forth the entire time. Zach was trying to get it to look at him.

Zach and Chris....not sure why they wanted a photo with the camels rear end, but me being the good mom I took the photo!

Zach with some shepherds that were telling us something. He was pretty into the whole experience.

Brit was loving every minute of this...he was looking at all the animals, probably wondering where he was.

Kids checking out the sheep...too bad I didn't get any sheep in the photo! OOOPS!

Some of our group taking advantage of a photo op!

Zach being Zach!

Chris and Caleb with some cute shepherd girls! They were so embarassed!

Craig, Kyle, Collin & Brit

The family, this would have been really cute except Caleb's weird pose! WHATEVER!

The little girls looking at the manger scene. They were loving the real baby Jesus. It was very quiet and respectful when you entered into the manger. I think everyone felt something different when they walked in.

Of course we had to find a boy shepherd to take a photo of the girls with.

Some of the gang waiting for our hayride back to the car. Trying to stay warm
around the fire.

Here's Brit after it was all said and done! Zonked out!

This was a great Christmas activity. We can't wait to go again next year!
