Making Additions To Our Traditions

With a large family, and kids who are maturing, and with the holidays just around the corner, and I’m constantly searching for decorations and gift sets to keep the holiday spirit alive. For Thanksgiving, lounging around in our pjs sipping hot cocoa, while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade have become our family tradition, so decorating here generally consists of a beautiful spread on the dinner table, along with a few gourds leftover from pumpkin picking.

Naturally, Christmas decorating is more involved, because I really thrive on bringing the Christmas magic to life. Watching Ryder, Siella, and Gemma light up with excitement is all need during this time of year. We always have a fresh Christmas tree that we all pick out and decorate the day after Thanksgiving. Each year I purchase a new ornament for each child, and it’s been incredible watching their collection grow through the years. I hang lights and decorations throughout our home, and it’s save to say that our decor is no brisk undertaking. Along the way I incorporate traditional pieces that showcase why we really celebrate the 25th! So, when I saw this Lisa Leonard Hand Crafted Nativity Set, I knew it would to be the perfect addition this holiday season! Lisa is a dear friend of mine, and incredible artist. She makes beautiful jewelry pieces and handcrafted bags to holiday keepsakes for the whole family!

A Savior Is Born Nativity Set includes 12 pieces sized for display on a coffee table, fireplace mantle, or wherever suits your space! The pieces include Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus and his manger, three wisemen, a shepard, and three adorable animal pieces that I know the kids will enjoy. I love this set because each individual piece brings together the entire story of why we even celebrate Christmas to begin. The set serves as a multipurpose decoration, because it is durable for the kids to play with during set up, and it adds to our Christmas decorating. The hand stamped poem hanging overhead in the stable piece, along with each very significant pewter piece help tell the story of, and celebrate the brith of Jesus.

With Ryder and Siella in religion classes, and Gemma starting next year, it is a strong reminder that Christmas is a celebration of life, rather than just an expectation of lots of cool presents! Most Christmas decorations are taken down and stored after the holidays, but A Savior Is Born Nativity Set is so slick and veratile, that it can really be displayed all year long!
