Mary, Donkey and Baby Jesus
Each Christmas Eve since the kids were little we have always done our little family nativity. This year we decided to keep it simple by only casting Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus. Only, the male lead insisted he was a donkey, not a Joseph. So, knowing how tricky animals can be, mom had to keep rewarding the donkey with treats to maintain his stage performance. Here is the donkey grazing on a few of them. We humans identify them as M&M's.
Mary and the donkey (on all fours of course) in a dramatic moment. It was really a beautiful adaptation along with Grandpa narrating the story from Luke. Merry Christmas.
