I love Nativity sets and I now have quite a number gathered up over the years. This one is a particular favourite as it is wooden and very child-friendly. I remember buying it in Selfridges in London and when Sarah was small she used to ask why Jesus was born in a table?
Today while taking my daily Christmas photo for this blog, my son stood at my side shouting “Cheese” to make Baby Jesus smile :). He then insisted on adding Santa to the visitors who came to the stable, and that I take another photo!!
So here are 3 photos for your delight! The first, me trying to be creative with the depth of field:
The 2nd including an unconventional visitor to Bethlehem
Todays Christmas Question/Answer
When do you open your presents on Christmas Day?
Our present opening is now spread through out the day, with stockings and Santa presents being opened before breakfast. After breakfast, we give each other our family gifts to one another. When Grandparents arrive during the day, the will be another exchange and opening of gifts. Finally, we open the rest after our Christmas Dinner, and spend the rest of the day struggling to open packaging and insert the correct size of batteries!! Please share when the presents are opened it in your house.
Thanks to everyone who has been leaving lovely comments, and also to those who have left some virtual presents under the Christmas Tree at the top of this post. I know it makes NO SENSE, but it’s fun 🙂
Take care, and see you tomorrow – when I may share a Christmas PAPER lo (shock and horror!!!) and might even let you see Jesus’ helicopter……
