Here is Mary and isn't the baby Jesus adorable?
This is my newest nativity! My nieces (who belong to the above mentioned SIL) sent me this adorable teaset! Wish they lived closer, we'd have a tea party!
And my last nativity story! :) Back before Christmas my parents went to Spain. They stopped by the house "on their way" and Mom and I were discussing all my nativities. I was telling her how I just really was to the point of just collecting smaller nativities, because I was running out of room. So I was surprised when I received this in the mail from her. It's not huge, but they are about 12" tall. I almost broke the thing when I picked it up out of the box. I didn't realize it was three seperate pieces! Thank goodness it didn't break!
So we when we were in Alaska this summer, a few days before Christmas mom holds up this tiny bag and says, "This is all you're getting Sara! And you have no idea what it is!" Now this is rather unusual, because we usually get a big gift and a few little things. So I said, sort of sarcastically, "I bet it's a small nativity from Spain!" She looked at me like I had just ruined the greatest surprise. Mike (DH) asked me why I had to ruin the surprise. And I said, "I was just guessing!" Here's what I opened on Christmas. While it's not my style, it's certainly my mom's!! It is all handcrafted in Spain, 24 ct. Gold. I have no idea what it cost, but I'm sure it wasn't cheap!
Well, shoot! I guess I forgot to upload it to photobucket! I'll have to leave you in suspense until the next time I post!!
And in the words of the best grandma ever: "That's about enough of that!"
