It began in my parents neighborhood.
When they moved, they continued tradition in their new neighborhood.
In 2005, we began the Walk to Bethlehem in our Sandy neighborhood.
Kenzie got to be Mary.
It was an emotional one for me. It was hard and a lot of work, but I was happy we did it. I knew my mom was smiling from heaven (and she knew my back was killing me...)
Last night, we began the Walk to Bethlehem tradition in our Draper neighborhood.
Hayden got to be Joseph.
It is a lot of work.
It takes a lot of time.
It also makes my back ache when it is over.
BUT, many friends and neighbors come.
I know my mom smiled from heaven last night knowing I am continuing a tradition she loved (and she knew my back was killing me...)
