We looked at the globe to see where in the world Bethlehem is, then painted pictures of shepherds on the way to Bethlehem.
After supper we met up with friends and drove to a church in a neighboring town that was hosting a "Walk Through Bethlehem", an excellent outdoor reenactment of what the streets of Bethlehem might have been like when Jesus was born. The kids (and mama and daddy too) loved it!
And, of course...there were cookies, too.
Lots and lots of cookies.
