Holiday Preparations

We decorated the church yesterday, and in keeping with it still being Advent, the Baby Jesus is not in the manger. He will be added on Christmas Eve at the Children's Mass.

In the meantime, preparations for our Christmas Pageant the same evening are underway. We got a late start because of other things going on, and I had to take over. We only have one king. I hope to remedy that situation at the next practice. This picture is from last year.

And as usual, the Advent Wreath is a beautiful reminder of that hope in our hearts because Christ came, and comes to us each day, and will come in the end.
 It is our Header challenge theme for this week. Check those listed in my sidebar for their interpretations of the them of Holiday Preparations.

Nicely done Kathy, the true reason for the season.

Nicely done! With travel being what it is these days, I am not surprised the kings were delayed. To you and all your pageant performers a very merry Christmas!

Love the manger figurines. They are really neat.

You do a great job in everything you undertake!
PS Regarding your comment: Thank you for the suggestion, but Blogger do their best to alienate their customer base in various ways. At the moment I have a workaround that works (Magic Export), but I have about had it with Blogger. I have dropped all plans for a total redesign of my blog within Blogger. Maybe I'll do it sometime in Wordpress.
