the baby jesus and oreos

for family night tonight we learned about the birth of the baby jesus.
followed by a serious lesson on the art of dunking oreos.
brennan even mastered sean's "sinker" rule.
wait for it,
wait for it,
max just overly dunked.
it was complete with singing and signing (did you read that right?) "away in a manger."
it was my favorite 20 minutes of the entire day.
we're on this week.
so on:)
except for the part where in my 29 years i somehow missed the part about WHY mary and jospeph were going from Nazareth to Bethlehem.
i don't know what i thought they were doing.
going there b/c an angel told them to???
or they were just moving???
or something directed them there???
my brain had just never wondered about that itsy bitsy little detail.
NOW i do.
NOW i know.
to pay their taxes.
have mercy.
it's just plain embarrassing.
and enlightening all at once.
good grief.

How funny that you didn't know about the taxes! I love that you shared that with us.

Love the little dunkers, too!

Sounds like a great FHE

I never realized why Mary and Joseph were going to Bethlehem either...guess you learn something new every day ;)
