Christmas Around the World part 4.. Netherlands







Yesturday some wonderful Friends of ours took us to the Netherlands for a Christmas market. We had a great day together! Our children get along so well, and it's always a blessing to see them on long adventurous days like this one.. still loving on each other. =)



I wanted to share with you the highlight of our day... This AMAZING
Sand sculpture Nativity.  It took my breathe away.... If you ever have a chance to visit, it's worth it!!!
Held in Wilominagrot in Vaulkenburg.

Here is the clan at the Entrance... Check out the Santa!





The Nativity was set inside a Cave. The lighting and everything was just perfect. You went from room to room to view each part of the Christmas Story.

Below, is Mary telling Joseph she is pregnant. ( a little late there if you ask me..)

                                              Wisemen and their Camels...best camel ever!

                                                                   The Kinders and I...

We visited the Vaulkenberg Caves Christmas Market.  The decor was very well done. We enjoyed all the decorations and fun viewings of Santa's home.. =)




The shopping was not so great, totally differant than German christmas markets. Many items were mass produced instead of handmade... We did buy some treasures and will always remember our special trip!


                                         I love how the Dutch decorate! Every thing about it!
