We had the opportunity to let Olivia act out the nativity scene with some of her cousins on Christmas eve. We had talked with Olivia previously and had told her the story so she would be familiar with it. Once we started reading and acting it out, she was very attentive and eager to act her part perfectly. It touched my heart to see my little girl play the part of Mary. She lovingly held baby Jesus so carefully. She told me afterwards, "Mom, I got to be Mary. I love baby Jesus so much! That was so fun!" What a great memory for her and a great way to teach our kids the true meaning of Christmas.
