The Nativity refers to the birth of Jesus. According to biblical accounts, Jesus was born to the Virgin Mary, assisted by her husband Joseph, in the city of Bethlehem. The birth took place in a stable, surrounded by farm animals, and the infant Jesus was laid in a manger. Shepherds from the fields surrounding Bethlehem were told of the birth by an angel, and were the first to see the child. Nativity scenes traditionally include the Three Wise Men, Balthazar, Melchior, and Caspar, who are said to have followed the Star of Bethlehem, found Jesus, and presented gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Did you know Delaney can tell you all of this (except she will answer God to Jesus’s father). How cool!
Let’s not forget what Christmas is really about…

    Delaney has really been into the holidays this year. We have lights all over the house (yes I finished decorating- Farley- I believe you would be impressed) and I put up lights everywhere- to the point of not needing to turn on any lights other than the Christmas lights- Delaney’s job is to help light them everyday. She has really enjoyed counting down the days with her snowman and playing with her nativity. I believe the next few years will be this fun, so I am really excited.
