Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve we started the day with our family scripture study where we read of the birth of our Savior in Luke 2 as well of the prophesy of this special child told by Samuel the Lamanite in the Book of Mormon. It was great to have Rachel playing the piano so we could sing songs that told of the same scenes. Alec dug out my old costume box so we could picture Christmas in full color. I would love to share this with you.

Alec as Samuel the Lamanite sang of the prophesy of the Savior to be born in Bethlehem

Douglas as Joseph and Nikki as Mary set the stage.

Dillon and Taylor filled in for Joseph and Mary after the birth so our sweet Victoria could play the star role, Jesus for the grand event.

Grandpa Jones did a great job as the angel who told the Shepards (Geoffrey, Danae and Michelle) that Christ was born.

Jared, Douglas and Kurtis sang in perfect harmony as they followed the star to that blessed babe.
