Our granddaughter, Lucy, has always loved playing with the manger scene that I inherited from my husband's grandmother years ago. It is beautiful and all the pieces are unique, complete with shepherds, wise men, camels, sheep, cattle and angels. The manger where Baby Jesus sleeps consists of pieces of cardboard that you have to put together. Lucy continually plays with all the pieces talking with the animals and various characters as she plays.
So this year following the Thanksgiving dinner my husband took Lucy up to the attic in search of the manger. Once it was located, Lucy set to work placing the manger scene together as she chose. It was really cute as she placed the ratio one animal to one figurine....after all, Lucy wants to become a "Pet Vet"....
Enjoy the pictures of Miss Lucy and our traditional manger scene.....it is becoming more dear to our hearts with each passing day.
