"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

The Christmas Journey

For the 2nd year in a row we loaded up the kids and drove them to FBC McKinney to go through the incredible Christmas Journey of the life of Christ. It is so much fun and so well done! We decided to go through the journey on a hay ride this year and the kids loved it! They even got to drink hot chocolate on the ride. :)

Two very cold but excited kiddos. :) Austin couldn't wait to go. He remembered it from last year and kept trying to explain it to Audrey. "Audrey, did you know that after Jesus was a baby He died on a cross for us?" Audrey - "Yes, Austin I knew that already." Too cute!

Sweet Ains all bundled up.

Letting some energy out. :)

It's hay ride time!

Jesus teaching the people

The last supper

Jesus being arrested

Jesus on trial (Austin got into this part yelling that Jesus was innocent. Precious moment for me knowing that our son was "getting it". Nothing better!

Jesus dies on the cross and then at the end of the Christmas journey they had Him show up to the disciples after He has risen from the grave. Such a powerful and wonderful experience for our whole family. Thank you, FBC McKinney for reminding us and so many people what the focus of Christmas should be!
