Oh! The Nativities....!
I Hope you will Understand, Dear Readers, when I tell you that I almost forgot to set up the Nativities in the mini houses! It has been that sort of Year... Season.... Month....Week....Not enough time for everything on the list! But I hurried around and Found the little pieces and reminded Pollyanna, because she really likes to set up the creche in the Lovely Old Dollhouse. She thinks the pieces are all where they belong...and as usual, she can't remember if the Camel goes on this side or that..., but no matter which it looks lovely and always inspires that deep feeling of Reverence. There is the Baby in his manger..... (I know he seems to have arrived a day too early!)... but there he is! And the Angel is singing Gloria! And the shepherd is looking on...
Oh, and Arthur has come to look too....!
"Isn't it lovely...?" asks Pollyanna.
"Very lovely," he says, not even looking at the Creche...
(Because he thinks his Wife is lovely...)
"Oh, you mean the creche...?" he adds with a smile.
"I think the sheep is too far back... " he adds
as he pulled the sheep forward.
"There. Like that!"
"That does look better" agrees Pollyanna, smiling back.
Meanwhile, over at The Folly,
Will has set up the tiny Nativity in the window.
It is getting dark and is really hard to see...
The lights are not on in The Folly....
But there.... the light is shining on the baby in his manger...!
And the Angel is singing Allelulia!
I am afraid Will and Gabrielle are not paying attention....
to anything but each other.
(They might be a match made in Heaven...!)
Back at The Lovely Old Dollhouse
Victor and Joanna are getting out the cookies...
And the Gingerbread too!
"Do we have to share the Gingerbread....?" asks Victor.
(His Wife is thinking the same thing...!)
Helen and Charles have been enjoying the Setting up of the Nativity....
Every year it is different... but the same...
which gives them Great comfort.
"It looks perfect from here..." says Helen.
"I lost track of Time...." explains Pollyanna.
"I almost forgot to set them up in time!"
"But now we're ready!" she declared.
Well, Dear Readers, I hope you are ready....
it is almost Time!
May you all have a Wonderful Holiday....
and may you Not forget the Nativity!
