another stop in the christmas countdown is taking the kids to the annual road to bethlehem production at the seventh day adventist church in canning vale. we went last night and as always, we loved it! they have a live walk-through nativity, complete with an awesomely angry king herod, livestock (including camels and a donkey, and this year a few chickens in the marketplace and the stable) and a sweet baby who of course plays the baby jesus.
the wise men visiting king herods court
the donkey in the stable... he is always my favourite!
mark, doug and the girls raring to get started...
we always invite our friends to come along, it is such a fun activity for kids... and such a good way to teach them the real christmas story.
this year mat, jen and baby jacob joined us too :)
and there is nothing like a good night out with your bestie without snapping a few selfies, in the bethlehem marketplace of course. haha
joseph and madeline enjoyed every minute, there is so much to see and do! we will definitely keep going each year as a family tradition, we love it!
and the countdown to christmas continues...
