Brock worked on the caboose, and Amelia did the Gingerbread tree.
Ethan did the "coal car" it was filled with M&M's. hey that is what powers me through the holidays too!
Usually the kids take turns "helping" Larry do the Gingerbread house. This year I had handed him the house told him it was all his! The kids are big enough they did their things all by themselves with NO help and NO instructions so Larry got to do the house all on his own. It really is a work of art! All I did was one gingerbread boy and girl. Ruth did eat the head off the girl for me though. I am usually there just to take pictures, clean up and referee any candy disputes. It was a lot of noise, oops I mean fun!

Joseph and Mary all ready
All the angles, sheep and Shepard's went to see the baby Jesus. Hayden informed me after wards that they used a doll for the baby Jesus. Probably because on the way there I jokingly said they should use Ruth as the baby but Larry and I were laughing that the baby would end up jumping off the stage, climbing the tree, grabbing the Shepard's stick and hitting everyone one with it, as well as who knows what else. It was fun seeing the other 4 participate though!
They all did a good job and it was very cute. They didn't have to talk there were other people who sang, and a narrator. It was a lovely evening.
I love that Santa will take a break and ride on the Carousel. I snuck this picture of him sitting in the "wagon" on the ride.
