On the first day of Christmas

This has been the first year that Isaac has been able to understand the concept of numbers and time, the counting down of Advent, waiting for Christmas to come.  We explained to him that Christmas is Jesus' birthday and so there would be presents and yummy food and lots of family time.
Andy's aunt has made advent wall hangings for both our children and I found a great Playmobil nativity set to put in the little pockets.
Over the course of 20 days (I was a little late getting started and we finished before Christmas Day - the logistics of transporting the whole thing to my parents' overwhelmed me), Isaac had great fun finding the number for each day and picking out a new little character or creature.
Is it just us or does baby Jesus look a lot like Luke Skywalker?!
