Last week J and I received a wonderful present just in time for Christmas. I was so excited that I opened it and got it all set up even though we were leaving later that day for Omaha to spend Christmas with J's family. Here it is:
A Fontanini Nativity scene!
I almost started crying when I opened the box because growing up my parents had a Fontanini Nativity scene and now J and I have one of our own! Growing up, my mom would hide the baby Jesus until Christmas day, when he would appear in the manger. Meanwhile, Joseph, Mary, the shepherds, sheep and angels would wait patiently all of Advent for that little baby Jesus to appear that morning.
I can't wait to start this tradition with our children some day with our very own set!
Woods of course had to interrupt my photo shoot. This picture tells you one of two things:
- Woods is a giant cat
- The size of Fontanini nativity scenes.
Thanks so much Maureen and Joe!
