Knit-ivity Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve…

1 Day Until Christmas…

There are no more cookies.  There are no more candies.  There are no recipes today at all.  Today, I am simply going to show you a wonderful gift that was given to me by my family.  My dear aunties, mom, and grandma all knitted me (and all my siblings and cousins) a Nativity.  My grandpa built the creche.  DSCN3536

When the boys were little, they got to play with this nativity. I used it to tell the story of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem.  I got to the part where “…and in the manger Mary had a baby.” and was interrupted by my oldest correcting me, “No, mom.  Mary had a little lamb.”

Around the time the boys started to get bored by the Nativity, the girl was born.  Her second Christmas, she stared wide-eyed as I got it out.  She looked at it, got a naughty smile on her face and went toward it.  “It’s ok, baby girl, you can play with that.” I said.  She lost the smirk and went to find something else to do.

Every year when I get out this Nativity, I smile.  There are four generations of love wrapped up in it.
