Monday Madness 12-8

Here we are the 8th of December already!! This month is really flying by. As a part of our Christmas tradition we have a Nativity. I think it is a great visual for the kids to learn the story of our Savior's birth. Two years ago, for Hailey's first Christmas my "made in Italy" Nativity was replaced with this one........

I love Fisher Price Little People, and this Nativity set is perfect for little hands. The kids were so excited to set this up one night last week.

Hunter making motor sounds and flying the baby Jesus in for a landing.

Hailey's turn, she chose to take baby Jesus for a ride in the Donkey cart. After the wild ride, she totally shocked me. She went and got her picture Bible and turned to the picture of the Nativity, she then matched up each of the figures with the picture. This was one proud Momma!! Later as we cuddled to sleep she said, "I love Jesus!!" That really made my heart happy!!

Needless to say that the Baby has been lost more than a couple of times this week, it is so funny to hear Hailey ask, "Where go Jesus?" LOL She put her little purse on her arm and told me she was going to Aunt Bob's house, "Jesus at Aunt Bob's house." LOL You have to love the innocence of a 2 year old.

So what are some of your family's Holiday traditions?

Until later~

my mom gave my sister this nativity set a couple of years ago as she played with Little People all the time when she was little. Now, her kids are playing with it and it's just so much fun. glad to know you share the joy!
