A Stable?

Every Christmas morning, when my kids were little, I read them the nativity story out of the big family bible.

When my son was old enough to talk, he asked me what a stable was.

I thought for a moment how to explain it to him in terms he could understand, then told him, "It's something like your sister's room, but without a stereo."

  1. bahahahaha! SD3 was a bit of a pigpen when she was a child. We all 4 sisterdears shared a bedroom. Janice had a bad habit of trying stuff on and taking it off and tossing them all into a pile on her bed. Eventually the pile would get so high she had trouble finding a place big enough to curl up into to sleep!

    Merry Christmas Eve, Sandee! Big hugs xoxo

  5. Now wait one minute. My stable is cleaner than my house. It is much more fun to clean the barn than the darn house. Sandee, we ALL wish you a very Merry Christmas. Big hugs to Little Bit.

    A very Merry Christmas to you and Zane!
