This is not just any Nativity Set. It is very special to me because it is handmade by kids I had in youth group back in 1982! Didn't they do a fantastic job? Each kid painted one piece and the names are on the bottom of the one each did.
Unfortunately, some of the original pieces got broken or lost when it was at the church. These were the original cow by Jeff, the angel by Henry, the other shepherd holding a sheep by Tracy and another sheep. Once I found this out, I promptly brought the rest of the set home and kept it for myself. Originally, I donated it to the church to set out each year.
More about this will be posted later on "My Funny Dad, Harry" blog relating to the actual making of it because, of course, my dad came through and assisted me with this too! (Will post once I get my older photos scanned.)
This is such a nice little house for me. I like when Karen brings it out each year.
I will just settle in while she fusses around with the other box of stuff.
Here's the little figures that take up all the space. I will help her get them out.
Always play along the way when doing chores . . . here I am impersonating Daisy the Curly cat, by wrapping this paper around me to look like a coat. What do you think?
I used to be able to fit in here better when I was just a kitten . . . I am now 4 years big!
Here is a picture of how I used to fit inside with the pieces without knocking over Mary.
