This year I decided we needed a structure to house the Holy Family so I set out to find one in my normal shopping place - the Internet and even in real stores. No luck. The standing figures are 8" tall and most of the stables were just too small to accommodate a set that size. And some of the reviews mentioned the item was poorly constructed. I talked it over with SuperDave and he said he could make me one but he does have limited time available, so I found a picture and e-mailed it off to my Mom. Could Daddy make me a stable for baby Jesus? Right away the reply came back - He said, "He thinks so." That was Monday - November 27th.
Tuesday, November 28th - I called to wish my Dad a happy 80th birthday and he was, guess where? In his shop - making a stable! He told me, "On your birthday you get to do what you want and I wanted to make a stable." He said, "You can tell everyone, my Dad made this for me on his 80th birthday." Did I mention my Daddy is THE BEST? Did I mention I come from a family of DIYers?
I planned to add the dried moss you see on stables at the store and this is the product I used.

It does need one more thing. I'm off to find a star for the peak of the roof.
Much Love & Laughter,
