Christmas Nativity Scene --Peace on Earth

Good tidings to all. Our Christmas tradition has begun. A big thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers who helped to make this possible. Thanks to Chris for great ideas and sense of peace and goodwill towards all.
The deer helped to remind us that we need to remember the true meaning of the season and to keep our decorations as simple and as natural as possible

Diane used her fine art skills to create an intricate painting of Joseph and Mary. Roxanne wrapped the baby in swaddling and laid him in a true manger made by Roy. Emily arranged the straw for the floor. Austin anchored the star of Bethlehem so it could be seen from afar. And Dan delayed his trip to Texas to bring around a natural wood camel, cow and sheep.
Cheri painted the season's theme of Peace on Earth and Goodwill to men.
We finished Saturday and we were glad for a break in the weather. Alex, Roxanne's rescued greyhound inspected our work and gave his approval.
Oh Peaceful night!!!!! Away in a Manger. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear. Joy to the World!
Thanks to all and to all a good night. We hope local groups will visit and maybe tell the story that gives the true meaning to this season.
