MOVING TO THE NEXT GENERATION
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
Last week I wrote a post about the history of our 68 old handmade Italian Nativity scene, which had been in our attic since 1997 when it was used for the last time.
This year we saw it again under the beautiful Christmas tree our son had put up.
It looked very similar to how Mr. G. had set up his Nativity scene, he got when he was 2 years old.
and it is still very beautiful. He missed his little river the bushes and the lake with ducks. I think it is the only item of his childhood he really hangs on deeply.
The parts in detail.
One year old Toby didn't really realize yet what it was, and we both had a little bit the blues, because our traditions had changed too. We always had put the gifts under the tree at Christmas Eve and started at 5 pm with a drink while we unwrapped our gifts before we had our Christmas supper, so our little son could already play with his new toys.
This time it was in the morning, while we had a cup of coffee and little Toby didn't know with what to play, because he had got a kitchen from us and a tricycle from his parents, but both had to be put together first, which took quiet some time. But then after his morning nap he could start to cook and bike.
While Daddy puts the top of the kitchen together (with a microwave ... please !) Nonno Mr. G. helps cooking. Then he made a tour on his new tricycle.
He really loves his kitchen !
