The Live Nativity....Even the animals were live

The singers in the bank were a great hit with our group

Watching and listening

The line to ride the horse drawn carriage was long and we were tired and cold
Becky said the kids could have ice-cream instead of the ride and all four kids were very happy with that

Back At The Hineses
