The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Every year at this time Annie is sneaking into my dish towel drawer to make costumes for Mary & Joseph.  She bosses Joseph around and sings Away in a Manger as she stares down at her baby.  This year has been no different.  I was instructed to have a stable ready when she gets home from school today :)







And that makes this the most wonderful time of the year!


My friend Chrissy asked me to guest post today! 
I hope you get a chance to stop by Chrissy's!

Hey Libbie! I've just caught up with your posts right back to November 16th! I just get such a kick out of seeing your sweet kids full of mischief and their bright shiny faces! These little manger scenes are adorable. And your post on the dumpster dives so funny! Kids say the darndest things -- hilarious! And I love how your mom saved each holida photo with some special material or paper from that time. Brilliant! Sure looks like baby is growing by leaps and bounds. Wishing you all the best this holiday season and always, Tammy

I agree that it's darling that they want to celebrate the real reason for the season.

Blessings to you and yours!
