1/3 the nativity

My paternal grandfather, who passed away right before Christmas in 2002, love Christmas. He made the girls in the family beautiful stables for nativity sets. Now that we are finally settled in a house where we know we will be for awhile, we worked on Christmas decor this year.

I had a nativity set for my grandpa's stable when I was young, but it was lost and broken over the years. This year I looked and looked for a nativity set. I finally found two I liked yesterday. My grandmother would have been pleased that they were on sale.

(There are more characters in the nativity set I bought, but I wanted to be sure that they at least fit in the stable. They do. Phew!)

The inscription Grandpa put on the bottom of our stables.
