I forgot to tell you guys this around the holidays, but DH gave DD (age 4) a Playmobil Nativity Set. DH is a former Catholic, still a believer but in what way I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, so he gives it to her and looks at me as if to say, "this is OK, isn't it?" which of course it is because she's not going to read the enclosed story book (thank you Playmobil) and she'll just play with them like action figures.

Which is what we did! We mixed up all the scenery, characters and costumes with an equestrian set. I never knew Joseph was so talented on a horse.

Anyway, the funniest thing was when DD had a random wise man with a staff and the baby Jesus and she said, "I guess he's taking the baby camping..." I thought about it for a second and then said, "Oh yes, because he's got the walking stick?" Yup, that was it. Just a guy taking a baby camping.

I get so much joy out of this group and all your funny stories I wanted to share this with you all! Thanks for being here for me in my sea of non-freethinkers! (otherwise known as central VA)

Hi Kristina!

That is so cute!

I love the story of Noah's ark and I just treat it as a fairytale.

I live in Beaverdam, which is about 40 minutes north of Richmond. We're 15 minutes from Kings Dominion (amusement park).
