with light and love

Well, we are not having a Shepherds’ Play at WSA this year, but I have found a wonderful story to use at home with our new nativity figures.   All Year Round has a sweet story on page 301 called The Little Lamb (an advent story for children between four and ten years).   It tells the story of a young shepherd who goes out searching for a lost lamb and encounters a lady with a deep blue cloak and red gown who is preparing her son for his journey to Bethlehem. 

Lindsey got some great shepherd photos the other day.


Remember, we promised one of these cute guys to you . . .

 We are going to giveaway of one of our shepherd figures and his little lamb.   Just leave a comment here on this blog before Sunday, December 18th when we will draw the name of our lucky winner. 

Best of luck!

And the winner is . . . Cambre Hogoboom

Hello and Thanks. My daughter has only two things on her x-mas list this year: some corduroy to make a dress like Mama’s and a Nativity set. Sweet, huh? She would LOVE this shepherd:)

    Couldn’t be more beautiful that these are made with some wool (and also cotton?)- from the sweet little animals that grzed on the hills these little figurines represent. My husband grew up shepharding sheep and goats and the Cruz family feels a special affinity for the image of the shephard at the holidays. So sweet…
