2015 Live Nativity

20151126-LiveNativity-048

It’s that time again! Oxbow celebrated the town light up and got the festive season kicked into gear the other night. We setup our live nativity again and it was great. Substantially warmer than last year which was weather from the depths of hades. This year we had very little wind which made it at least 17% better for man and beast alike!

We had our resident livestock guy Hubert bring us some sheep this year which is always a hit and the kids did great acting out the Bible characters. Nobody yet has volunteered their newborn to be baby Jesus though. Probably the -25ºC temperatures have something to do with that! lol

I threw in the Nikon Df and the ever versatile 16-35 f/4VR lens that I like so much for event photography. The Df lowlight capability makes up for the slower f/4 aperture, but I’m not going to lie, it’d be nice to have Nikon’s new 24 f/1.8G lens for evening event photography. I’m debating picking it up.  But then again, I also want a new FujiFilm camera too. And if you get a new FujiFilm camera, chances are I’ll want the new 35mm f/2 lens to go with it… Contentment…Contentment…Contentment… 😎


2nd Annual Hallowiener

20151031-Hallowiener-027

Happy Halloween! (Reformation Day to all the Lutherans) 😎

Each year on the 31st our crescent comes together to host an event affectionately called the “Hallowiener”. We sell hotdogs and a drink for $5.00 and donate all the proceeds to a cause. This year it was supporting the Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan. It’s great to help out because any money given the government will match. This year we raised over $600.00 and sold a pile of hotdogs! Thanks to everyone who came out and helped out! 😀
