"All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel - which means, "God with us."" Matthew 1:22-23
Here are the pictures of the nativity that my beloved hubby got me that I refered to here.
I've always wanted a really nice nativity that would be a real focal point in the living room. First I had to have a mantle though! :v)
That we got a couple years ago. Hubby surprised me with this mantle a few years ago and the nativity a few weeks ago. I had asked for it but he seemed reluctant, being the budgeter of the family and all, but when I showed him other nativities in other stores and how they were 2 to 3 times the price for not as nice ones he went straight to Costco and bought it. It's so detailed. Joseph even has bags under his eyes. I'm thinking he might have been a little stressed that night. :v)
The reason I liked this nativity so much is because of that kind of detail. The clothing is real material. The wise man have jewels on their belt buckles, staffs, head gear, and that is even a free swinging little pearl necklace in the jewel box. His sword is free hanging and the camel's bags are real material and yes, that is real fake fur on the trim of one wise man. It's all very detailed.
And speaking of nativity's, look what someone told me about!
