My Grandma's Nativity
 A couple of posts back, I told you that I received a few large pine cones in a box my Grandma had sent for me.  You know it's going to be something good and something older when it comes in a box marked ATARI. 
Here's what was inside...A large Nativity scene that my Grandpa Rex painted years ago.  This is the Nativity that used to sit in my Grandma's dining room.  Christmas Eve and my Grandma's home go hand in hand.  I have so many wonderful memories of spending time at my Grandma's during the Holiday Season...decorating sugar cookies, eating Lutefisk and Lefse(If you're Norwegian, you know what these things are)
This Nativity is one of the things that stands out in my mind, and when my Grandma asked me if I wanted it, I did not hesitate to say yes.  A lot of Love went into painting it and it was displayed in a loving home for many years.  I feel honored to have it passed down to me and my family to enjoy for many years to come.  Thank you Grandma.
