Somehow, after 37 Christmas celebrations, countless retellings of  Christ’s birth story, and at least 2 midnight mass attendances, I still managed to miss the part of the spear wielding caped Lego skeleton riding in on a horse to be part of the Nativity.

When you have kids, you learn so much

    That is damn funny, I lost my baby jesus and replaced it with a green alien, really pissed my mother in law off (she gave me the set). I just donated it to Goodwill, I wonder what the person who buys it will think of the alien, LOL

    I love these manger play scenes.

    My kids put gumby and pokey in the year.

    My mom got all pissed off, but I loved it.
