The Nativity Story
This movie came out in 2006 and we rented it this weekend. I HIGHLY suggest it!!! It was very well done, my kids have watched it a few times now and its really brought the Christmas spirit into our home. (Its not done by the LDS church, so there are a few things that are different) The main thing we really noticed is the wise men are shown arriving at the time of birth, instead of two years later. Everything else was really well done, we learned alot about how things were at the time of Christ's birth!
A funny story... it does show Elizabeth and Mary giving birth (not in detail, but there is pushing and babies pulled out from their clothing) When Mary gives birth Joseph holds up baby Jesus and you see his backside with a tad bit of blood on him. Well Emory turns to us and says...."Baby Jesus doesn't have any clothes on!!!" It turns out Emory thought we came with clothes! We had to explain to him that everyone is born without clothes on and that "No Sari is NOT wearing clothes right now"

This is a great story. I really enjoyed it. Angelo especially enjoyed it because his family is from that area and the people in the nativity story are actually NOT WHITE!! :) I know that sounds dumb but Jesus Christ is not as white as we are. He was born in an area where your skin was slightly darker. Anyway, sorry, long story there but Angelo loved that they characters where more accurate in that way. :)
