This morning, Maggie was pushing around her Bitty Baby in the doll stroller, shopping bag over the handle (just like mommy), and reading aloud from her 'shopping list' a.k.a. a paper napkin..."hmm, toys for Meaghan, toys for Leah and toys for Baby Jesus!"
We went out and got her this 17 piece Nativity set at Walmart yesterday. It was only $15! What a bargain and so cute too. She loves to hear how the angel told Mary she was going to have a baby and how Jesus was born in a stable and the kings brought him gifts, so that's why we give gifts to the people we love. The set comes with a hay bale. She puts the hay bale in the manger and then precariously places Jesus on top. They laid the baby down on a bed of hay remember? She takes these things very seriously - and literally.
She also loves to hear about how Santa is going to sneak into our house to bring her presents. She sneaks around on her tiptoes like a cat burglar and asks "is dis how Santa sneaks?"
Sure Marge, just like that.
Hope your Christmas preparations are going well!
