Bet You Won't Find THAT Little Detail In Your Bible.

When Spencer and I got married, 12 years ago on Dec 20, We were given a Fontanini Nativity Scene. It's one of my favorite Christmas decorations that we have and I always look forward to setting it up in a special place.

This year, Tait and Camille have discovered it. They LOVE it. They play with the wisemen (all of the characters are made of resin/plastic and are virtually unbreakable), the donkey, the camel, and OF COURSE fight over Baby Jesus (who they call a "she" - welcome to living in a house with all girls. Everything is a she.) I have it set up on a table in the den and let them play and play and play with it.

Yesterday, they had been playing with the Nativity Scene for about 45 minutes when they moved on to something else. I walked by it and noticed a new character had been included in the sacred manger scene.



Behold, Cinderella made it to the blessed birth of our Lord and Savior.

I haven't found proof of that little fact in my Bible, yet, but I'm checking all the translations to see if she's mentioned.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas. Hope your holiday season has gotten off to an amazing start!

I think she blends right in. Almost like she was made for that set. Almost.

Too cute! I love it.
Oddly enough, Ali was trying to insist that Jesus was a girl today, too.
Must be in the water.

Cinderella is such a wannabe. (chuckle).

Hey, my mother-in-law started a Fontanini set for each of my kids. She gives them a new piece each year! They keep their set in their rooms and it's one of their favorite decorations too!

Laughing so hard! Reminds me of Eliz. Dudley Alford's FB post last year that said her nativity had been out for less than an hour and Baby Jesus was missing. He was later located in the Littlest Pet Shop house in Charlotte's room...

That is hysterical! That would so happen at my house. We got a Fontanini Nativity when we got married almost 10 years ago, and I love mine too!

I can relate...but we ended up with Rescue Heroes in ours...and they were like giants who came to take over the nativity set. I think I like the Cinderella better!
