Nativity Scene Theatre.
Rachel has taken to our Nativity Scene like an ant to a honeypot. Since there is no way to keep it out of her reach, and she doesn't play rough with it or move the figures from the general area, we have decided not to stop her.
This morning the littlest playwright set up a very interesting scene involving the angels and the Holy Family:
Angels: "Can we hold the baby? We're angels!"
Mary: [Jumping up indignantly and moving the baby away] "NO!"
I suppose it works--Our Lady is the Queen of Angels, too.
