Since I didn't post over the weekend, I figured I'd better get caught up with Susan
's December photo challenge.
Day 10: Away in a Manger
This is a necklace that I have. It's one of my favorite Christmas necklaces:
I also took a picture of the alcove at church. The whole manger scene isn't set up yet; Baby Jesus won't be put in until Christmas Eve Mass:
Here's my manger scene from last year. YS did a little decorating this year, so it looks a bit different:
I saw this manger scene as I was riding down the road. Growing up, our next door neighbor had one that she used to put out every year. It wasn't nearly this nice, but I was able to smile at the memory.
While I was on the lookout for a manger scene, I was so surprised that I couldn't find one outside of a church. Do you have one outside of yours?
Day 11: Ribbons and Bows
I have to admit: I didn't think ahead on this one. I snapped this picture of a tree in the restaurant where CH's company had the Christmas Party:
It came out blurry (like you couldn't tell!), but you can see the ribbons on it. And, here's a picture of my wreath:
Last but not least: Day 12
This wasn't sticky when I took a picture of it, but once the little girl starting licking it, it was!
CH stopped this little girl who was going back to her seat after visiting Santa at the company Christmas Party. The grownups across the aisle looked really funny at me, until I told them what I was doing.
We're almost halfway through the Photo Challenge, but you can still join in the fun! Visit This Day!
for the list and start snapping!
Oh that big nativity set is gorgeous. I love nativitys of all kinds and we have several. Hubs is in Germany and I told him to feel free to buy me another : )ReplyDelete
I love the manger scene in the alcove at your church. Our neighbors have a simple nativity scene ... cut out of plywood and painted. They've got a spotlight on it which creates a shadow of Mary and Joseph kneeling at the manger. I love it! I have a Willow Creek nativity set that I have set up on the table in our foyer.ReplyDelete
I think I'm getting a kick out of where you find these items!ReplyDelete

For Love of Cupcakes
I am loving all your pictures. There is a live nativity at one of the local churches. I'm hoping to get a photo of it this weekend. If I do, I'll be sure to post it. Thanks for playing. Blessings, SusanDReplyDelete
