The Broeker Christmas

We traveled out to Bartley, Nebraska for our Broeker family Christmas this year on December 20th and 21st.  Carla and Scott hosted the get together and we enjoyed a nice ham and baked potato dinner.  The traditional Christmas story was read before we opened any gifts.  It was nice to hear Kati, Madison, Tyler and Zack take turns reading about the birth of our Savior.   

In the evening, we ventured out in subzero weather to McCook to attend a living nativity at Scott and Carla's church.  Their church went to a great deal of work with the nativity.  I have never seen a church go to the extent of having an actual market place that depicted the time of Jesus's birth.  Amazing detail!  

It was an enjoyable weekend and the weather, fortunately, cooperated!  Tyler and Madison love spending time with their cousins Zack and Kati.  It's nice that the kids are all the same age...only poor Grant gets left out a little!  :)

Wow. That looks like so much fun. Definitely worth the trip.

Very cool-it looks like it was a very neat setup! We were so excited b/c for the first time they were doing a live nativity here in our town- but we spaced it off and forgot to go. Hopefully they do it next year!
