Christmas party fun!!

Our ward Christmas Party was this weekend, and I have to say - Hayley totally outdid herself planning this thing!  It was amazing.  The theme was "A night in Bethlehem".  We had the party outside, and the Activities Committee set up all of these amazing booths.

When we first got there, we paid "taxes" to the Emperor in the form of canned food for the food bank and had to sign our names on the census.

Here you could make a name badge in Hebrew characters.

This is the bakery.  How cool is that?!

Here is a "shop" where you can pick out a costume if you didn't wear your own.  This is what happened to the robes that I made last week, along with some others that some of the other sisters made.

There was a fire, which was totally essential, since it was freezing out - quite literally.

And we got to take our pictures in the manger.  I know, the kids aren't dressed up.  We decided that warm was more important.

Of course, their favorite part was the tractors that were scattered about the place.

Does Hayley look frazzled?  Nah - she's a pro!  I know a ton of work went into putting this together.  It was really awesome!

Found it. The activity looked fun. We got there at like five-fifty and it was dark and the food was gone so We didn't get to do any fun stuff but the choir sang beautifully.
