The Nativity

We unwrapped the thrift store nativity pieces one afternoon at nap time, when I sensed my little fellow needed some special time with me.
He put the characters where they needed to be. Shepherds on a hill of rumpled blanket overlooking a plaid flannel sheet Bethlehem. Wise men far off in the East at foot-of-bed. Mary and Joseph in a quilt cave. He listened intently as I quietly told the story. I sincerely love how he is grasping the season this year.
Later, the nativity moved downstairs to the dining room table. I feel it is too precious *not* to be played with and I think you'll enjoy his little three year old addition to the creche scene:
