Creative Play

I'll never cease to be amazed at the many ways in which Dylan consistently thinks "outside the box". Yesterday morning, I sent him to play quietly for a while in his bedroom while I tried to get a few things done around the house. When I went to check him a little bit later, I stared in amazement at the clever nativity arrangement he had created by gathering items from all of our bedrooms:

His Little People farm and animals comprised a large majority of the scene, but he also included one of my favorite Willow Tree statues to represent the Holy Family, accompanied by his miniature wise men:

My favorite part, though, is evidenced in this next photo--a shepherd riding a John Deere tractor and two angels "riding a buggy, because they want to hurry just as fast as they can to see baby Jesus!" (His exact words! How precious is that?!)

Although it covers the entire top of his dresser, I'm just not ready to put any of it away yet...maybe after Christmas!

That is amazing. I don't think I could put it away either.
