I had been under a lot of stress from extended family issues, mostly because of dumb circumstances, not really anything anyone in particular had done. But, I was not really feeling the love this holiday season.
Until Morgan got out the glue gun and made these wonderful puppets for me.
I had seen them on Joann's blog a few months ago (joannclegg.blogspot.com) and LOVED the idea. Every year I try to get the kids to act out the Nativity on Christmas eve, but with only three kids, it's not very easy.
This should solve the problem. Three kids = six hands.
Like Joann, we made them using only things we had around the house, which forced us to get a little creative sometimes. (I act like I'm taking credit. I did help - a little. I looked up the scraps of material and stuff.)
So, I know you want to see them. See if you can tell which one doesn't belong.
Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus
The wisemen (I think the one on the right looks a little bit like Howie Mandel.)
The innkeeper and the angel
And the nun
I can't really explain the nun, but I do think that she turned out kind of cute.
