Greetings & Cheer

This is the nativity scene in our home. Years ago when my oldest (now 15) was 7, she was terribly upset at our lack of a beautiful nativity scene. She and her then 5 year old brother created this scene (until we save money for a "Pretty one" she explained) all by themselves. I cannot think of a better use for Barbie, Ken, Rescue Heros and playskool barn set. It is the most beautiful nativity scene ever (in my mind anyway).
Now at 15 & 12, they both still drag out the scene and set it up. At midnight the golf ball is removed from Mary's belly and baby Jesus is placed in the manger. Gone are the thoughts of purchasing a "Pretty one". It is one of our favorite parts of the Holiday season.
