We made sure we brought a bit of Christmas from home... to make us feel more at home.
Our 4 foot tree has some Nauvoo wooded rounds and some "brick" ornaments Bryce made with cookie cutters.
It looks really good.
This is the 2nd of 4 quilts I've now made for the humanitarian efforts here in the Mission. It's fun to make quilts for others who don't have much.
This is a beautiful Nativity in the Visitor's Center. It's absolutely lovely.
Some of the folks gathered to watch the tree lighting. I like this because the Christus is lit reminding the group of the true reason for celebrating Christmas. Various local school choirs sang before the tree lighting.
Three days later we were in Handel's Messiah with full orchestra. It was alot of fun. This will be our 12th year of singing "The Messiah". Who knew we'd be able to do it in St.Peter and Paul's Catholic Church here in Nauvoo, Illinois!
