Anyway, it inspired us to get out the only Christmas decorations we own. Besides red and green otter-pops, we have several nativity sets. Funny story about the one below, while Brian and I were in Africa, he bought this peice and said that it would be a Christmas gift for his future wife. I remember thinking that I'd love to own that one day. HA! Look at me now!
This beautiful set was acquired in the same purchase as the future wife peice. It is a 16 peice set but Brian also added a few more animals to the traditional scene. You might notice the hippo, rhino, giraffe, and family of elephants. Not your typical nativity set but we love it. It takes us back to Africa and where it all began.
