i brought zero christmas decorations with us. thankfully, my momma taught me how to sew...sew (ha ha) i whipped up this tree skirt, based off of this tutorial. i am sew (sorry, couldn't resist) happy with how it turned out!
a couple dozen cookies later, we arrived at the church to view a live nativity. it was amazing! the spirit was so strong and the stake did a fantastic job portraying each aspect of the birth of our Savior. my favorite room was the angels.
there was an entire room of nativities from around the world. i loved the one from california (pictured bottom left) with rocks shaped like the nativity. very cool.
