And decorated the gingerbread cookies. I remembered why I don’t make these cookies. Mainly because I have no patience for decorating cookies. It was also painful to squeeze the icing out, so I just made the hole bigger and smeared icing on some of the cookies instead.

Our church had a registration only, live nativity scene. One of our friends was signed up to be a wise man, but his son got COVID, so Rob stood in his role as the Wise Man with the camel.
