Our Christmas journey...

Last year, Joseph and Mary started in Grandma's yard an ended up at the barn with the animals and manger, with the beautiful star above.

We are adding sheep and sheperds to our nativity this year. (They are in our yard. Fog makes cool pictures.) You can see in the distance the star on the barn. The shepherd is waiting for the other shepherds to arrive with the lost sheep.
More to come Cannot tell you until it is up...suprise for the neighborhood. I will post it then.
This has been a group project, Grandma, Andrew & Becca and us. We even have plans for next year...wisemen & camels. Do they come from the north???
