I know that it is December and one's time is supposed to be jam packed that it is hard to find time to do anything spontaneous. Well, Saturday after Auston and I had done some Christmas shopping we decided to take a little trip to Midway. It is absolutely one of our favorite places ever. We stayed at the Homestead, it is so cute and cozy. Childhood memories came flooding back to my mind.

We were so lucky because when we pulled in to town we discovered that it was "A Swiss Christmas" Midway is such wonderful place with such a great community. There was a gingerbread house display which you could bid on.

The best part of all was the Creche display. There were hundreds of nativities from all over the world. It was so spiritual to see how people from all over the world do believe in our Savior. I definitely will make this a Christmas tradition. The Savior is the reason for the season. (I had to include this awesome picture of a real ice sculpted nativity.)
