The Best CHRISTmas Gift ever...


The mailman had delivered some swap packages I was expecting and he also handed me another surprise box from Jen it was like Santa had knocked at my door. To my great joy she had sent a beautiful Nativity set for our family. How blessed I am to have such a wonderful friend, thank you!

A few years ago my Sister gave me these wooden trays she purchased at Michaels. The have been sitting around collecting dust, now I have figured out what to make with them. I was inspired by a project our DD had in school to make a Diorama of the Jungle eco system. My Diorama is of the Nativity and I used the wooden tray to make the present and it is wrapped in a golden bow.

Put CHRIST back into CHRISTmas in 2008...

So I ask you what has been your best CHRISTmas gift?

Luke 2:7

and she gave birth to her first born son. She wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Want to watch a great Christmas movie you have to see the Nativity Story


Some great music can be found here...
