Merry Christmas from Los Angeles, CA

Hello and Merry Christmas to one and all. My daughter and I went to down town Los Angeles here in CA to Olvera St., she had to pick up a little crib for her baby Jesus. We did some shopping there and paid a visit to a most amazing church, more like a chapel, absolutely fabulous.
This is the life size nativity scene outside, we could not believe the beauty in all of this. Just click on each picture to see them larger.






This is the church, took these photos from across the street.



The picture does not do this amazing altar justice, it is breath taking.

Just look at this gorgeous angel, their were two of them.

One on each side of Mother Mary and so many flowers, could not believe all the flowers everywhere in there, almost like a florist.

This is a wall of crosses in one of the shops, sorry I posted it here, should of been the last one.

This is the room where the children, babies and adults are baptized. Their was so much more and have more pictures. Thought this was a perfect time to post all of this.
Wishing everyone a very Blessed Christmas and that 2012 brings us all good health.

  6. What a beautiful nativity scene !!!! And the altar in the church is splendid ! Greek churches are also beautiful and especially the byzantine style ones are breath taking. I am sure you would love them. I wish you a very merry Christmas to share with your family and a very happy new year.

  7. I just posted my Christmas home decoration. Come and see it ! As we will celebrate Christmas away from home, I did not decorate the big tree but just a tiny one. However, I could not resist doing small displays here and there around the house !!!

  8. I grew up in Southern California and we went to Olvera Street once in awhile. I loved going there as a child and took my husband and children from Canada many years ago. That is a beautiful nativity and the church is lovely.

  24. Did you know that you can put a code on your Java Script so that people cannot copy your pictures? Just google: disable right click on blogger and it will give you the code to paste in.

  26. Thank you for coming to my blog. Glad you were able to disable right click so no one can steal your pictures. I have a 22 year old son who is a computer techie and he told me about this. There is also a "disable left click," and you can google that, but I think you must paste the code on that one for every picture, I'm not sure. For right now, though, the "disable right click" is great.
