For Family Home Evening, Emilie and some of her siblings gave us a surprise Nativity.
Emilie was the angel, the Narrator, and the planner/plotter.
Timothy was Joseph and Liberty was Mary, and there's baby Jesus.
Nathanael was the innkeeper. "No room" he peeked around to say. And he made sure we followed the Joseph Smith translation, where it says "inns".
Samuel and Juliana were very excited shepherds. Or at least Juliana was the excited one.
This shepherd ran ahead to see Jesus before the angel even said anything.
The angel told the shepherds not to be afraid but to find the baby.
Here we go. Right on time.
No King Herod isn't the same guy as the shepherd. How could you ask that?
Here come our wise men. With gifts. Looking for the baby Christ child.
This little wise person got frankincense or myrrh all over her.
Herod says to make sure to come back and let him know the good news. Nah, think the wise men.
The wise men come bearing gifts.
The star the wise men followed.
Toothless wise man.
I think Nathanael is sad that it's over.
