Fond Memories of my kiddos...

Back in the "olden days", my husband would work late, and my little preschoolers and I would, turn on that Christmas Music, (yes, on the record player), We would have the Christmas Tree lights on and dim all the other lights..... the kids would all get their robes, and drape fabrics over their heads to look like shepherds, some kings crowns for the wiseman, a baby doll for baby Jesus, Mary needed just a little blue draping scarf... just a few props. With the music in the background, they would re-enacting the christmas story set to music.... what fond memories....
