I was given a very special addition to our Christmas decor this year.
My Mom and Dad invited us over on my birthday in October ~ and she told me it was going to be a very special birthday. That really had me wondering. When we arrived they both were quite excited and took me into mom’s study to see the special gift she had crocheted for me. You might remember all the delightful items she’s made for family over the years. From Star Wars characters for the great grandchildren,
They’ve all been delightful and loved! But this time she outdid herself. She crocheted me a nativity!
Aren’t baby Jesus and Mary precious!
Mom actually placed some of her old earrings in the crowns of the kings. And the gold gift is Dad’s cuff link, filled with leftover gold from his dental practice (which he’s been retired from for decades).
And just look at the detail on these delightful animals!
I couldn’t resist setting it in a place of honor right away, and at our family Thanksgiving gathering it was there for all to enjoy!
Trey especially loved rearranging the people and animals, and pointing out all the embellishments Mom included.
What a priceless gift! And a tribute to our Saviour! I am beyond blessed.
A Very Merry Christmas to you all!
