We took the kids to "Experience Bethlehem" at the Clear Fork Church. You go room to room and hear parts of the Christmas Story and watch a little drama scene as the story is told. After you get through all the rooms/stations, you get to go to "Bethlehem." The church's gym is set up like a little town with shops and the stable with real animals.
As you enter, you have to sign the "census" and then they give you a bag of coins you can spend in the shops. They have a jewelry shop where you can "buy" a beaded necklace or ring, a flower shop where you can make your own potpourri, a wheat mill where you can grind wheat and buy some crackers, a pottery stand where you can buy a bag of clay...plus many, many more!
They even have a jail! There are Roman Guards that walk around and if you are messing around they will take you to jail :)
This is one of my kids favorite things to do during the Christmas season. What a neat ministry this church has, and it's all free!
We set up a another mattress for Skyler beside Melissa's bed. In the morning they said that they both ended up sleeping on the mattress! How cute :)
Good Night Girls!
(an hour later...giggle, giggle :)
