Thanks, Mom & Dad!

December 15, 2008


My parent sent us a goodie box for Christmas, and inside was a cute little box with a note from my Dad – “Open now.”  (Always a good note to put on a gift.)  Inside was a very cool manger stamp to use at the preschool.  The children have enjoyed it very much!  Here is a small sampling of their work:


“There’s two shepherds and Mary and Joseph and an angel. And the sheep.  And Baby Jesus.”

Also awww…

“I made Mary and Joseph.  These are the cows.  There’s a building and the sun.”  In both of these examples, I love the animals best.  Of course, they aren’t all so detailed… or historically accurate, for that matter.

Ouch.  Watch your back, Joe.

“I wrote some words.  It says Baby Jesus was sitting in a cradle.  There was a knife and monster that bite Joseph.  I wanted to make it scary.”

Mission accomplished.

    Those pictures are udderly adorable!! (sorry)

    I’m almost as good an artist of those pre-schoolers…almost. Last year a teacher’s comment on the bulletin board I did was: “I didn’t know there were dinosaurs at the 1st Christmas.” (they were camels) This year the baby Jesus & cradle look like a spaceship, complete with extraterrestial glow. sigh
