This year we stayed at home for Christmas and we had a great time spending time together as a family. On Christmas Eve daddy and Ellie had fun delivering yummy jam and other sweets for our friends and neighbors, and then we had a super yummy Christmas late lunch of ham, feta cheese mashed potatoes, a crunchy salad and a Christmas cobbler from Grandma. Just enough food to last us the rest of the day. Later we opened Ellie's new pajamas and read and acted out the nativity. It is interesting to act this out with only three of us, so we got help for some of the parts from all of the stuffed members of our family. I think sometimes it got silly and inadvertently sacrilegious, but we didn't mean it to be!!! The story started with the angel (snowman) appearing to Mary. Then Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth (me, the narrator) who was pregnant: with a pillow. Then Mary got very pregnant and rode the donkey (also her husband Joseph) to the inn where they settled into a stable. The snowman angel reappeared to the shepherds: Peter the magic elf, Num Nums, Pipsqueak, Kitty, Zambi, Quacky, and their one lamb. They all came to worship the baby (Buttercup) in the manger. We meant it to be very sincere, but about halfway through I think we realized it wasn't going to work out how we had planned.
