The set has been gifts from my mom and grandma over the last few years. I wasn't able to take them to Northern Ireland when we moved and then when we moved to Missouri it was January and I wasn't thinking about taking our Christmas things. So this is the first Christmas we've been able to set it up in our own home. I love it.
The boys and I unpacked them and set it up on Thanksgiving night.
I remember setting up the nativity set with my mom growing up and it's fun to be able to do it with my own kids now. I think setting up a nativity is a beautiful way to keep the reason for the season in focus.
Some time in the next week or so we'll go to Santa's Christmas Tree Forest and get our tree! We're waiting for a nice cold day to go. This past weekend the temps were up to 90 degrees! For some reason it doesn't seem very Christmas like when you're sweating while setting up your tree. =)
In other news. We had our first sale in our Etsy shop last night!
I hope you're having a nice "chilly" Tuesday!
