All things Christmas

A local church puts on a fabulous living nativity every year, and I took the kids on Saturday night while David was at the base.  They loved it!  Sunday, we put together our annual gingerbread house.  Because we're deep in the middle ages this year in school, we created a gingerbread castle. 

 Graham's favorite part of the whole night was this chicken.

We used leftover Halloween candy to decorate our castle.

 This kid ate way too much candy.

 A knight and his spear
 The king and his crown (with our fantastic smarties moat in the background)

 Finished!  The castle and the keep.
