The Three Passersby


If you look really close, you can just make out Baby Hulk Jesus' tiny pecs!

Setting up our nativity scene is one of my favorite parts of decorating for Christmas. It isn’t anything fancy and has been around since pre-kid days, but I enjoy carefully unwrapping the little porcelain figures and putting them in their special places.

I also laugh every year at our Baby Hulk Jesus. Seriously, someone had the brilliant idea to paint pecs and six-pack abs on our baby Jesus. It is the most hilarious thing!

This year, Makenna helped me set up the display while her brothers watched. She started telling them the story of the nativity. She did pretty well until she got to the three wise men. She couldn’t remember who they were and called them “The Three Passersby.”

I stopped and said, “Wait, who are they??”

She replied, “You know, they were like shepherds just passing by and thought it was pretty cool that there was a human baby in the manger. So they went out and got him some presents like clothes and soap and stuff.”

Oh, sure, I remember now?????? Need to find a Christmas Eve service, STAT!!!
