Nativity Week 2
This week's group shot was of the actual stable scene - this year I tried something different and have Mary and Joseph sitting with everyone gathered around them - rather than have them standing. I am not sure if I like it - they rather get lost in the crowd.
The wisemen are wearing crowns I made from plastic canvas and covered with fleece - then I glued 'gems' on them. They are all three wearing 'skirt' robes. The two on the right have tasseled table runners from Dollar Tree over their shoulders as mantles.
I used to have this little guy's older sister in Sunday School. She wouldn't talk to anyone. He will talk with the other little boys and will do the actions to songs but will not talk to the adults. Today he talked to me because I gave him one of the wisemen's gifts and he wanted a different one - specifically this big trunk. :) It used to hold dvds in our living room.
Daniel comes running in for the photos today and says "I want to be the donkey." Tell me he isn't the cutest donkey you've ever seen.
I know, I know. Lots of pictures of the angels - but I think they are such cute little girls...
