I have one of these statues in my home and it is by far the favorite christmas decoration of everyone in my family. Two years ago, when we went to put away Christmas, my son wanted to keep this out for the whole year.
One last thought before I sign off until 2009! In Primary last Sunday, during her sharing time on Christmas, one of the primary counselors read the following scripture: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son."
To make this more personal to ourselves and to our children, remove the word "world" and put in a name.
For God so loved "Mason", that He gave His only Begotten Son.
Merry Christmas Everyone
