I didn't make the vinyl tile. Our former bishops wife made that for us, I didn't make the manger either. Technically my dad did. But without me telling him what I want, it would have never been made. We are trying to see if we can fill the manger with soft, warm straw by doing kind acts so that baby Jesus will have a nice bed on Christmas Day.

Same with this one. I didn't make the nativity, or the star. I did buy them! I have looked high and low for a manger for my new pieces. No such luck, so I made my dad build me a stand for them. I think I like it better than a manger.

I have that exact nativity and the stand is a great idea. It looked sort of funny before, it needed something. I just might have to copy you!

I absolutely love the idea of filling a manger with straw. What a great way to dedicate the season to Him. How fortunate for you that your father is so handy with wood.
