Joy to the World

Yesterday, P and I spent the entire afternoon cutting twigs and reclaiming reusable cardboard from old cartons. Then we spent the rest of the evening trying to get super glue off our fingers. If you, dear readers, are wondering what we were up to, please allow us to present our “all natural, no added preservatives” DIY nativity set 😀Amigurumi Nativity & DIY Stable

Amigurumi Nativity - Baby Jesus, Mary & JosephIn the stable with Baby Jesus are Mama Mary and Papa Joseph. Dinky, the donkey, is maintaining a safe distance from the child because he is wary of old men carrying shepherd hooks 😉

Amigurumi Nativity - JosephAnd I agree with Dinky, Papa Joseph’s hook looks quite menacing. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that guy either.

Amigurumi Nativity - MaryBut Mama Mary is kind; she feeds Dinky every day and he is very fond of her. In fact, when Mama Mary was pregnant, he carried her on his back all the way from their home in Nazareth to this place they call Bethlehem. Now that they are in this strange land—and living in a stable!—he stays as close to her and her baby as possible, and if bad guys come near them, Dinky tries out his karate chops on them. Eee-hah!

See, there’s Dinky patrolling the area to see if any baddies are lurking around. With a black belt like Dinky around, who’d be afraid of the big bad Harold! 😀

Amigurumi Nativity - Jesus, Mary & JosephBaby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and mister donkey are made from Gourmet Crochet: Amigurumi Nativity.
