Ward Christmas Party

 To say our Ward Party was amazing is an understatement.  The invitations were a scroll declaring that we should all travel to Bethlehem to pay our taxes.  The gym was completely transformed into the town of Bethlehem.  Our taxes were canned food to be donated to the Food Bank.  Then when we paid our taxes we were given coins, that would be used to purchase our dinner. 

We purchased some food from "WoolMart".  Dinner was pita bread, chicken, meatballs, fruits and cheeses.  I was worried my kids wouldn't eat anything, but they loved it!

We were suppose to dress up, and so we all did.  It was such a fun night.

After dinner we watch a reenactment of the Nativity, we watched as Mary and Joseph were turned away at the Inn's.  Then we all went out side to see a "Live Nativity" which included animals! The kids were so excited and it was very neat! There was a Camel, goats, sheep and a donkey.  It was incredible!

This party was held right after Thanksgiving and it was a great way to start the Christmas Season.
