The nativity is an important part of Christmas for us. This is because for us, it's what it is all about. We have 2 nativity scenes in our house. One is for the kids.
This Little People Nativity is one they can move around, act with and tell the story of Jesus' birth. They love making the Wise Men come when Jesus is born. The angel sings. The animals gather around. This nativity is played with on a daily basis!
This nativity is one that my mom gave us for Christmas one year. I love all of the pieces this has. It has moved around from place to place in our house, and this year it is on top of our piano. I like having it in a place where we can see it every day.
The one nativity I remember is this one.
It's at my mom and dad's house. I played with the Baby Jesus all the time, because it comes out of the manger.
I can "feel" it right now-the smoothness of the metal with details still on each piece.
Nativities really have a lot of meaning in our house. I can't imagine having a Christmas without them in our house.
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
