Christmas Decorations With a Twist

We have had a lovely time decorating our house over the last few days.  Boxes of Christmas things have come down from storage and we have all been reunited with all sorts of treasures that only make an appearance at Christmas time.

For example we have a Little People nativity set complete with Baby Jesus (or Baby Cheezel as he is known in our house.)   The girls really love this set I think Miss M was given it as a toddler, a good six years ago.  I always feel really mean when I pack it away each January but feel vindicated every December when it becomes everyones favourite toy all over again.   We set it up on a side table and they all take turns arranging a scene.  This year is the first year we have had a 4 year old boy in the house (under 4 he just took his lead from the girls.)  This is how I found the nativity vignette...

Running for their lives from the evil spaceman

Meanwhile Rudolf had made off with baby cheezel
and was well on his way to the laundry.
