Our church recreated the little town of Bethlehem complete with a marketplace and live nativity. Both boys loved it! Some of the highlights are pictured in the slideshow above. Note how Cole is darting away from the camel in one photo...his least favorite part were the live animals. Travis really thought it was cool that the three Wise Men came up to him and asked if he knew where the baby called "Jesus" was. They posed for a picture and afterwards Travis whispered to me, "They're from the East, you know." The carpenter was really in character, too. He told the boys about a manger he'd recently made for an innkeeper's stable. And he'd heard that a baby was using it for a bed. Cole's eyes got wide and said, "That might be Jesus' sweet head." (His class sang Away in a Manger for their Christmas program on Friday.)
