Away in a Manger

on December 2, 2015


It is bittersweet watching the girls grow and “outgrow” certain things…

One of their very favorite Christmas decorations has always been the Little People nativity set.  I used to set it out and they would play with it for hours!  They would even incorporate their own toys into the manger scene.  One day I even found Homer Simpson on top of the manger!

I noticed yesterday that they hadn’t even taken the nativity set out of the box yet.  Sigh… 

I seized the opportunity yesterday and took the nativity out myself!  I set it up on the floor under our tree- something I would have NEVER done- for fear that one of the pieces would get lost or would end up in a toy box somewhere.

As I sat enjoying my cup of coffee this morning, I watched my dog lying under the tree. It has become his favorite spot- resting on the tree skirt under the warmth of the white lights from our tree.  Little did I know, he was waiting to make his move…


I raised my voice at him as I watched him lunge forward and grab the baby Jesus from the nativity.

I laughed as he dropped it from his mouth.  Leave it to my beloved dog to bring a whole new meaning to “Taste and see that the Lord is good”- Psalm 34:8
