I told the grands we'd wait until December to put out the nativity sets and they were ready and waiting! M always puts this one up. Until this year he would mischievously put baby Jesus on the roof. or a sheep in the manger. This year he declared himself too old for such antics ( I'm glad).
Those camels chained to one another are forever falling over but he patiently puts them back up.
This is our very old set, ordered from the Sears catalog many years ago. Surprisingly enough not one piece is chipped and the music box ( which plays Silent Night) still works.
Miss C. puts this one out and for some reason all the sheep are squished together. Must have been frightened by the angelic hosts singing.
Years ago a local church presented a live drive-through nativity which was amazing but unfortunately they don't have it any longer.
I hope you enjoyed a peek at our Christmas so far.
