Christmas Party!

Last night our church family held its annual Christmas party. This is one of the reasons we love these people- yes, they love God, but several of them are certifiably crazy too. (If I could show you pictures of Greg in the Green Elf suit, you'd understand.) It's always a fun evening. Here are a few photos:


Here we have Mary and Joseph. I'm sure Joseph's Deer-in-the-headlights look of fear is entirely biblical, even though Luke left that part out. Don't you think it would be accurate for the text to read something like:
"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And Joseph was shaking in his sandals and collapsed in the hay bale when it was accomplished..."? Not very poetic, is it? I can see why Luke left it out.

Here is the assembled cast. Note the red and green shepherd and the dark brown camel, my personal favorites.

This is my My Ho-Ho-Honey!

Mommy didn't get to kiss Santa Claus because she would have gotten fake beard all over her lipstick.

Happy Thursday, ya'll! Now go wrap those presents!

really cute photos, looks like a good time was had by all! You are probably right about Joseph...I remember the look of fear and shock on hubby's face when I told him we were expecting our first.

That Santa looks so familiar to me...It was a fun night! I love our crazy church of the weird and the broken.

Emily did not know what to think about Santa, but I'll tell you, her eyes never left him the entire time he was in the room! Her expression stayed pretty blank, but he had her full attention!
