When Avery isn't dressed up as Rapunzel or Cinderella(which is 90% of the day) she has come up with a new "dress up" obsession. Mary. I love the age of make believe and dressing up. Last week she came to me and asked me to help her look like Mary. At first I wasn't sure what she meant and then she explained, "Mom, she's Jesus' mommy of course!" So we did our best and she now loves to play Mary. She knows the story so well and travels from her room through the house to "Bethwaham". When Chloe cooperates, she gets pulled along as the donkey. Daddy is Joseph when he gets home from work. I guess she couldn't think of anything for me so she lets me be the innkeeper.:) Today she told us the baby Jesus was the Savior. So precious. Can you guess who stars as baby Jesus?? The whole thing is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen.
