A Fisher-Price Advent

It is Advent and we again took out the Fisher-Price nativity set for the kids to play with. Mary and Joseph as well as the donkey, camel, and oxen have all been found and are being played with. We even managed to find the wise men in a corner of the basement. But once again, for the third year in a row little baby Jesus cannot be found. 

This year instead of tearing the toy bins apart looking for him I am trying to just get excited for when he does turn up. I can still hear Emily's voice from that exciting moment last Christmas: "Mommy, I found baby Jesus!"

Come thou long expected Jesus, come.
