One of my most favorite holiday activities is to watch the live Nativity pageant. I have loved it since I was a little girl. My grandma made the costumes for our local pageant, so I would get to go behind the scenes, I felt like a V.I.P.! Now, this isn't any old pageant, just a few people dressed up with with a toy baby doll and a few stuffed animals. NO, not this pageant. The costumes and set? Perfect. And, real animals were used? Yes, were. You see, last year the pageant was cancelled because of venue issues. It was held at a LDS church but another businesses land was also used to accommodate seating and parking. This business needed to use their land so this space was no longer available to be used for the pageant. I have to say I was a little devastated. How could we have Christmas without the pageant? Well, Christmas came even though there was no pageant, but I missed it as did so many others. Are you getting the picture about how much I LOVE the pageant? Well....It's back! It is not being done by the same people,so it is little different but the spirit was there and the real meaning of Christmas is once again being celebrated. Thank you to all those who put on the "old" pageant and to those who are now taking on the adventure. I know it is A LOT of work to put on a production! Countless hours are spent not only in rehearsal but in making costumes, sets and everything else that comes with putting on a show. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my holiday season!All bundled up to stay warm. Yes, I know Levi's eyes are covered. He needs darkness to sleep. As soon as we moved the hat from his eyes he woke up.
