Here is the scene..........lots of work goes into building this each year.
Each year our church Christ Bible..........presents the Christmas Story outside live. Last night was no different. Lots of people come and watch and listen. Then everyone is invited into our church for snacks and warm drinks. Some of my pic's are not real clear......... Sorry! You can still kind of get a feel for the night though. Children and old love it!
This is a favorite for me!
Tressa was Mary this year, Taylor was an angel and My Honey was a Wise Man.
The donkey brayed through different parts of the play..........right in the actor's ears........
and you can't laugh!
The camels are huge and a hit!
My sweet man..........a Wise Man! His beard fits right in!
You wonder how many that come........and hear the CHRISTmas story..........are changed? That is our pastors prayer.
One of the son's who's father is the owner of the Hedrick's Bed and Breakfast Inn and Exotic Animal Farm brings all the animals for the play. One Sunday before church we were driving into town. We saw this huge giraffe walking down the street's sidewalk....... in the little town, with a collar around his neck and a man leading him. Quite a sight to see in Kansas.
All along the highway you will see lots of zebra's, goat's, deer, kangaroos, peacocks, ostriches and lots more. The prices for staying at the bed and breakfast are very reasonable. They have family suites and each room is decorated with really fun themes.
One room is all decorated in a Zebra theme. Breakfast is also served. They also travel with the animals to different State Fairs. If you ever in the area......it is a very fun
place to stay.
Vitaliy's first morning in church here in America!
He always......always has a smile on his face. We have been blessed!
Vitaliy..............loves to hold hands! We are blessed........beyond what we ever could have imagined! This picture really got me..........son and a little orphan boy.......lives can change. Ladies if you have children not walking with the Lord...........stay the course and pray! Don't get weary!!!!!!!!! God hears Momma's and Daddy's!
Some could not see the video of Vitaly coming in at the airport. Here it is. All my family including every grandchild was there! I am "Babushka!" We are a blessed family. If you ever want to sponsor a child go to New Horizons. A precious family that had done this before us said you will be changed. We have been!
Busy making CHRISTmas gifts all this week. Enjoying it~~~~~~~~~ a LOT!
