There's a large church in Lakeland that puts on a huge Christmas display every year (for free!), so we took Fischer Friday night. It starts with all the kid's stuff about Christmas - Santa Clause, reindeer, gingerbread men, snow queens, the Grinch, etc. Next you get free refreshments - cookies and hot cocoa. Finally it ends in a walk-through-Bethlehem...a whole town set up with live animals (donkeys, goats, camels) and tons of people (census takers, basket weavers, chicken sellers). Finally it ends with the live Nativity. It's a lot of fun to go to each year! We didn't take any pictures in Bethlehem, but here are some of the fun ones from the beginning:
Fischer liked the life-sized reindeer.
He's reaching for the snow! (It's just bubbles -it's Florida!)
A silly picture :)
He wasn't sure about the Grinch - he wasn't really afraid, but he wouldn't let the Grinch touch him either.
Merry Christmas to all of you - from all of us!
