Had some lovely fog on Sunday morning. I really do mean lovely. In Southern California, a change from the daily is very refreshing. Though we’d all start complaining if it lasted for too many days. We kind of love our sunshine here. 🙂

Made my first batch of homemade chicken noodle soup. Needs many more spices, and probably less celery. Maybe more chicken? 🙂 Anyway, it was edible, and that’s what counts. I will add more spices next time.

BTW, I have to cook gluten-free so I used Mrs. Leepers Vegetable Twists. It held up well for the first cooking. We’ll see how the leftovers fare.

After the church service we went to the Journey to Bethlehem at church. The whole thing is set up to show what life was like at the time of the Messiah’s birth. It reminded me of a farmer’s market, only you can’t actually buy anything. 🙂 Here’s DS4 (Braniac) checking out the fresh produce table.

Here’s the herbs and spices booth. I think this is where we had tea. It was extremely bland compared to what we are used to. 🙂

After watching this fellow make bricks, I decided I’d just buy mine. ;D

We checked out the carpenter table. Babycakes (not pictured) did not want to leave this table. He loved to see all the little wooden toys and thought it had been set up for him to play with.

Then he discovered the musical instruments table. Wooden toys that make noise. Much more fun. Maybe I’ll have to look into some patterns for next summer when everyone will be home for three months.

But the part that fascinated my kids most was the potter. They were surprised you can actually make your own vessels. Sounds like another good thing to work on next summer.
