Now you know why you haven't heard from me much lately.
However, I did visit the Nativity display with my kiddos and neighbors the first Friday it was open. I hope you love Nativities because I wanted to share a few of my favorites here... and of course there's a few of our kiddos actually dressed up in the kids' room like Mary, Joseph, and the angels.
They had an international room, and this one was from (I think) Japan.
See those stars? They are actually lights shining through the fabric!
One of the Lego nativities...
I took this picture for my friend Becky who is a Snoopy lover, but I also love the one in the lower right-hand corner made of marshmallow people. Amazing!
Our family's nativity on display. (Best wedding gift ever from the Broome family!)
A table display - just to give you an idea of how many nativities we really saw. There were tables ALL OVER the church.
This one is carved out a single piece of wood - a slice from a tree. And near it (though not in this picture) was a nativity made from hand-painted grains of rice. As in, a single grain of rice painted to be Mary, one painted to be Joseph, the Baby Jesus, and more.
I just loved this one...
Coconut shell nativity... maybe? Not sure what else it could be - any guesses anyone?
This picture wasn't taken at the Nativity Display, but it is several of my other small nativities that we donated. The two in back are ornaments, and the one in front my brother Niel brought us from Peru when he came home from his 2-year mission there.
And just so you can get an idea how small it is... that's a pencil.
And last, but not least - the people pictures!!
