We were so touched this year when our church asked us to be one of the families to do the advent reading during December. It was a great way to start of the holiday season! Reagan read the last line and did a great job! He is such a sweet boy!
We took a couple of family pictures after church that morning.
Another fun thing we were asked to be a part of this year was our church's annual "Follow The Star". It's a walk through story of Jesus' birth. Nick, Harper and I were the the Holy Family at the end of the journey. It was so special. Each tour ended in front of us. Bible versus were read, the children's choir sang, and all of the viewers joined in to sing Silent Night. Harper did awesome. She LOVED all of the people staring at her and danced and sang along (in her baby coos) as they all sang. It was so funny! There were a few tours where I actually had to wipe away the tears from laughing so hard. (Pretty sure Mary wasn't laughing hysterically after Jesus' birth!) People were taking pictures and video-taping us... It was sort of awkward but we felt great being able to serve the church and community in this way! I loved when Harper would wave to the kids watching and you could hear them turn to their parents and say "Baby Jesus just waved at me!". Such a wonderful memory.
