Lego Nativity

If you search "Lego Nativity" on Pinterest there are some great ideas!
We found the link to these instructions and decided to make this HOLY scene today.
It was hard to find all the pieces they used, but we improvised and loved the drawings they made!
We usually build temples for this blog. The temple has NO meaning without the miraculous birth, life, death, and resurrection of our Savior, the Son of God, Jesus Christ!
In fact, when we enter the temple, we learn of Him and how much He and God the Father love us.
We don't share that enough here on our little spot in cyberspace.
So we want to make it clear to all who happen upon our blog,
We believe in Jesus Christ.  He is our Redeemer and the only way toward heaven!
We celebrate his birth this season and wish you all a

Hamilton, New Zealand

 Studette built the Hamilton, New Zealand temple with our new LEGO temple kit.
To find out which pieces are in that set, see our instructions tab or click here.
It only took her about an hour.
I really like the detail sticker she put on the steeple with a lable maker.  Inventive.

Guayaquil, Ecuador (small)

Today the kids each made a mini model of a temple from our new set of LEGOs.
We hope to have instructions soon. Sorry the instructions take a while to post.
So, that makes 4 temples we can build with this set! The next few weeks we will show you each one.
One of the best things about it was the kids could make them easily by themselves at this size. It is not too overwhelming for them. It took less than an hour!
Legolas, Studette and Bob the Builder have had a lot of practice building temples, but every child that comes to our home seems to be creative with LEGO!

Today we show you Legolas's version of the
Guayaquil, Ecuador temple in honor of our neighbor, Elder Barney who just left to serve as a missionary there!
Merry Christmas Barney Family!

I really like that this temple has a steeple on the back end of the building.  Unusual.

By the way, we have been wanting to make a large LEGO model lately. Time just hasn't permitted, but don't worry, we haven't stopped! Choir practice has just taken precedence!
