The Animals Christmas

  "The Animals gave him a manger bed, gathering near as Christ was born;
  And as they smiled and blessed his love, the animals spoke on Christmas morn.
        And now, on every Christmas Eve, a wondrous miracle takes place,
 And the animals speak among themselves, of the love that shone from Jesus face"

        From our barnyard to yours, the animals bid you a joyous Christmas!



  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours. I can't wait for the grandkids to open your book on Christmas day!

  2. I do hope you will enjoy the book with them for many years to come. I will soon be posting illustrations in the works of the book I am currently working on, hope you will visit often!

  3. Hi Jeri,
    I loved this post! When my girls were little, my mother kept finding her carefully placed nativity pieces all crowded in around Baby Jesus, and we finally discovered the girls were the culprits! She decided that they had the right idea, and left it that way! That first picture brought that memory back!

  4. Kim, After taking this photo, I added all the rest of my little chalkware critters to the group and I really loved the huge crowd. Turkeys, chickens and horses joined baby Jesus. Your girls had the right idea!


Please do leave a word or two, we SO like to hear from you!
