For the past six weeks, my two-year-old’s favorite toys have been the “guys” from our little wooden nativity scene. It brings him so much joy, I can’t bear to put it away. Just yesterday, our Fisher-Price school bus took Mary, Joseph and some shepherds on a tour of our house!

What melts my heart the most is how much my little guy loves the angel. Nobody gets the star treatment from him like she does! This week, he couldn’t stand the thought of leaving her at home while he was at preschool, so he brought her along (that’s her enjoying the ride above) and then she stayed in his tiny backpack all morning. I’m not sure who’s protecting whom, but seeing my little angel with his little angel is so sweet, it brings tears to my eyes.
