I have a confession to make:
It is not yet Thanksgiving, and I have a Christmas decoration up at my house. Made by my three boys - pictures to come, when I can get Kerry to upload them…
In keeping with their previously referenced obsession, they have created a wonderful Lego Nativity scene!
They’ve built a stable, with baby Jesus. Some sort of cauldron is standing in for the manger. The part of Joseph is being played by Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Mary is represented by Marian Ravenwood (from Indiana Jones). “Get it Mommy? MARIAN… MARY?”
There is a shepherd, come to worship, who I think is another, older, Ben Kenobi figure.
The Wise Men and camels are being played by three Knights in Shining Armor (from the Castle collection), carrying treasure chests full of gold, jewels, and another special piece that Gunnar informed me is the myrrh. They have come on their three warhorses.
We have no sheep, but several snakes and fire ants have come to keep watch. And another very practical shepherd has built a fire outside the stable where he has apparently cooked some chicken drumsticks. He appears to have brought a bucket of bananas to share.
My boys rock!
