Nativities and Bible Lessons

My dream of dreams is to have the complete Willow Tree Nativity. I love the whole Willow Tree line, and this nativity just touches something inside of me like no other one I have seen has.

For now however, this is the nativity we have here in the Crazy Carroll Compound ...
Yes, it's a Little People Nativity. I got it at a garage sale and I have to admit, I love it to death. It is just soooo cute, as the girls would say.

Our Bible lesson this Christmas was for the girls to learn that Jesus was born on Christmas, and that his mommy is Mary and his daddy is Joseph.

Me: "Whose birthday is on Christmas?"
Maddie: "Baby Jeeeeeesus."
Katie: "Id's Kadie's birday. I need cake." (Pause, after a look from me ...) Then she says, "Baby Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesus!" and collapses into a fit of giggles.

They both know Mary and Joseph, too. Excuse me while I go pat myself on the back!

I love the Willow Tree nativity set too. I have seen on several other blogs. It seems to be the most popular. I think the one you have is darling. Your girls are too funny!

I love the Fisher Price Creche, one the kids can play with, and you have taught them well. A Christmas without Jesus just isn't Christmas to me. The Willow Tree Creche is beautiful, I know you will have it someday. Enjoy today, recover. Oh your house lights look beautiful
