    There ya' go!
    Nativity!!!
    I wondered if that's what it was.
    Yup! Know that one.
    Did the Christmas story with puppets one year at Church.
    I did several of the characters. I had the most fun doing a Trio of
    Camels in the Stable. It was all done from the animals view.

    We have one my Grandmother made from Green (?) Ceremaics
    back in the 50's.

    Looks great Nelson! I love the contrast between the seemingly opulant buidlings and the manger, it illustrates well the part of the story where they were turned away from the inn and makes this song pop into my head:

    "away in a manger..... no crib for a bed........"

    Merry Christmas to all!
