Fun with the family on Christmas Eve!

December 23, 2013

We were so pleased to take in the 50th anniversary of the Nativity pageant put on by the LDS church members in Calgary. I remember being in the pageant, as a youth, and it has been a tradition to go every Christmas. It was amazing to see it again, after having missed it for the past few years when we were in Saskatchewan. It truly felt like Christmas, again!
