Nativity McQueen.

There are two hobbies that my husband is possibly more passionate about than football (a subject we won’t be mentioning this week): Legos and Christmas Decorations.

In fact, I often wonder if the reason we had children was so that he felt justified in playing with Legos again.

Anyway, for the last three years, he’s been combining these two hobbies to create unique nativity scenes for our mantel.

And this year’s show just rolled out. He is fairly proud of himself, and of course has banned the children from playing with their featured toys for a month.

So without further delay, a commemoration of the birth of the Son of God:

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  And everyone went to their own town to register.  So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David.

But there was no room at the inn.

And so Mary gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger.

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them,

and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi arrived in Jerusalem.

They came from the East and asked,

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of tires gold,

traffic cones frankincense, and organic fuel myrrh.

Now there, don’t you feel all Christmasy inside?

  2. Loved it! I think I got a little misty…

  3. oh man!!! I LOVE THIS!!! now i miss my nativity set back home.. its nothing fantastic, but its a willow tree one and I love it lots..maybe next time ill bring it back out here with me….

  4. This is SO creative! I am very impressed! Every character he chose was absolutely perfect. I especially love the “flock” and “King Herod!”

  5. Very clever and creative! And MUCH less creepy than most of the non-human nativity sets that I have seen. There is one set in a catalog that I get around this time every year that has a cat nativity. Seriously. Baby Jesus is a kitten. I find it disturbing.

  6. This is pretty dang awesome. R2D2 is still in our Nativity scene even though baby Jesus returned from the depths of the toy box.

  7. Lol, that is awesome!!! Those Cars Legos are too cute. We obviously don’t have any of those running around our house. :) Plenty of Friends Legos to go around though! I should have the girls do a Nativity with them!

  8. Oh, this is cracking me up. (Especially the tractors!) Brilliant.

  9. Chris is such a cool dad! Love the creativity!
