Alphabet Advent: D is for Dreams

マリア像 25 cm 陶器 Mary Riding on Donkey on their way to Bethlehem

Every nativity scene I see has Mary riding a donkey,
all the way to Bethlehem,
and all the way to Egypt.

Perhaps she did.
It was a common way to travel in those days.

Joseph dreamed and God told him to take Mary as his wife.

He dreamed again, and was warned to flee Bethlehem into Egypt 
before Herod could kill the child Jesus.

Simple Crafts

You could do this up in Christmas colors and stickers.
Maybe string candies to it - dreams of candy for Christmas,
from the Night Before Christmas.
My girls tied lots of candies to 6" rings and gave them for Christmas one year.
