Holy Night

This is our "child-friendly" nativity scene. It is similar to the one that my family had growing up. My mom crafted it, and it's very sentimental to me, because it reminds me of my childhood.
I love how Joseph has scraggly hair, how the camel is kind of bow-legged, how the angel's blond hair is untamed and how simple Mary is.
The only downside to having this within reach of the boyz is that at any time of day, the wise men are discovered bearing their gifts next to Elmo and Cookie Monster, the angel flies with her wings into the block bin, the animals scamper onto the train table, and baby Jesus can be found joyriding on the back of a Tonka truck.
