Be Having a Baby Gorilla (in your nativity scene)

This year the boys are having difficulty waiting for the baby Jesus to arrive in the manger in our nativity scene. I’ve explained numerous times the meaning behind the nativity scene and Christmas. We’ve explained that we celebrate Jesus’s birthday on Christmas, just like we celebrate their birthdays on the day they were born. I explained that baby Jesus will appear in the manager on Christmas Day. (If I can remember where I put him!)

Today I had a HUGE belly laugh out loud moment as I walked by the nativity scene and saw a gorilla lying in the manger.

Check it out from far and near:



Should I leave the gorilla in the manger? Yup, I think we will.

Happy seventh day of advent! Ahhhh eeee ahhhh!
