This year, I set up a manger and purchased a Baby Jesus for the kids to play with. My favorite part is his holy halo (a lit-wreath-thing from Ikea.) Wrapped tightly in some swaddling clothes, he resides on the fireplace hearth. But, he doesn't stay there mind, you. Anne makes sure that he is fed, that his clothes are removed when he is hot, etc. He's made several trips in the car, a grocery shopping venture and he even went with us to Chinese food last night. That's right Jesus is everywhere.
We recently presented Jesus with three gifts from the Wise Men. (I got all three of the containers on super clearance during the past year.) We'll be learning more about the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh over the next few days. I'll be sure to share our findings.
