Every year the kids in our Friday night Bible study act out the Christmas story. There are parts for all! We call the evening "bar night", because we start out with a potato bar and end up with an ice cream sundae bar. Yummy!! This year Elizabeth baked 40 pounds of potatoes, so that tells you something about the appetites of this crowd! I made a crockpot full of chili (7 quarts practically licked clean, LOL), and others brought ham, taco meat, cheese, broccoli, bacon, sour cream--anything delicious you could want to put on a baked potato!
Then the kids disappeared downstairs, along with random stuff the different families had brought along for costuming purposes, to determine who would fill the various roles.
It is always such a fun rendition of the Christmas story, and it definitely gets me in the Christmas spirit every year! Then we go back upstairs and have ice cream with every topping you can think of--M&Ms, oreo crumbs, gummy bears, chocolate chips, tons of different sauce flavors, etc. There was a dark chocolate sauce this year that I loved! I need to find out where that came from . . .
