Christmas in the Family Room Sneak Peek

Its the most wonderful time of the year....

What makes it the most wonderful time of the year......the birth of  Jesus!

I bought this lovely pastel Nativity set at an estate sale back in the summer.   I haven't seen very many pastel sets,  so I was very excited to find this one. 

We had to move this white display cabinet down the wall a little to make room for the Christmas tree  to set next to the fireplace.  (see the sneak peek of the tree in the right corner)     I had to take down the bowl that was below the white ceramic water dispenser to get the cabinet in place.    I told H that I needed to put the bowl somewhere safe until after Christmas.   H suggested   that I might think about using it as the creche.   I tried it....and really liked it!   Thank you H!
I have several Nativity scene's displayed in the family room this year 

The set only had the little boy and one small,  I added some more to make him a flock.

I am so excited about this years theme for the family room and can't wait to show you more!
