Arias Family nativity scenes

I love the Reason for the Season! A well-placed nativity scene reminds us all what its all about.
Two years ago, I got plaster figures and painted my own nativity scene, just like my mother had done 30 some years ago. It was a tremendous effort on my part, as I am not artistic. I was pleased with the results. Then, six months later, I lost all my Christmas decorations in a fire. We lost many things in the fire, but I mourn the loss of my Christmas things the most.
Last year we bought this set to replace the other.

Our second scene is a Chilean-style Jose, Maria and NiƱo Jesus. I need to get a better setting for this one. Its really cute.

Coming soon, pictures of our tree!

Can't wait to see your tree too. I love these figurines, how lovely and I just LOVE the chilean style ones, how unusual!
