Advent with a Twist

Tonight was Naomi's turn to open the third box in our "What Does God Want for Christmas" advent set. She looked ahead last time and announced that she already knew the third box was Joseph, so Nate and I decided to give her a little surprise. I snuck Joseph out and put R2-D2 in the box. Boy, was she surprised when she opened it! Nate read the story putting R2-D2 in instead of Joseph and Naomi said vehemently, "That's not funny!" Later we put R2 in with Joseph and Mary and Gabriel in the manger and Naomi quipped, "R2-D2 is from Star Wars, not Bethlehem!" Maybe R2-D2 will be in the manger every once in a while to remind us to laugh a little at Christmas time! : )
