A long tradition in the Orme home, we had all available children dress up in characters from the bible. We decided that if we are going to keep celebrating Christmas away from extended family, we need to have more kids to complete the nativity.
This is an action shot. James is reading from the bible, and William is trying to get Naomi to say her line. "behold, a baby is born." She never said it.
Here we have Joseph, an angel and a wise man. I thought that Scout could be baby Jesus, but there would be no "babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger" this year. She would not comply. If she could talk, she would have said, "mom...that was so six months ago." All in all, one successful nativity for 2008.
