This year, I was caught in a weak moment and bought yet another Nativity Set. My logic was that Nate has no 'decorations' in his room, and maybe if he was in charge of decorating, he might be more inclined to keep his room a bit tidy.
So, once home, Nate and I cleaned up his room, and made a big space on the top of his dresser where he could set up the Nativity Scene, and act out the story as many times as he wants.
Here we have the Holy Family, so happy and rosy-cheeked:
But what's this?
The Wise Men seem to be wiser than we think. Ahead of their time, one might even say...
Yes, they're arriving on ATV's.
But wait. There's more.
And there were in the same country, shepherds, abiding in the fields...
...keeping watch over their scorpions by night...
This Nativity Set seems to have a bit of a lack. There is no angel. But Nate improvised. I will spare you the photo of Ned Flanders standing up on top of the clock radio. When you push the button on his back, he says "There's always room for one more Flanders", but, as Nate says, "That's just another way of saying 'Fear Not!'"
