Advent Calendar 2th of December

2th of December

.................................................................................................

“It snows! It snows!”, yelled Mazie Hawthorn excited. The little mouse sat on her parents bed and looked out the window, where big snowflakes slowly fall down on the frozen ground.


“Snow!”, replied her younger brother and crawled next to her, “Snow!”


“Oh that’s wonderful!”, Michael now also looked through the window, “And what snowflakes! Darling, you must look at that!”





Now the whole mice family watched the falling snow.



“It’s so romantic!”, sighed Katie happily, “I love the winter time! Hopefully the weather will stay like that. Last year it was such a pity – Christmas without snow.”
“The newspaper says that we’ll have a white Christmas!”, her husband said.
“Let’s hope they’re right!”

When Katie and Mazie went to the nursery they faced many children, who enjoyed the first snow of the year, while they waited for their bus to the school.



Good mooded Katie opened the door, she planned something special with the nursery kids for this year.
Soon all the children had said their goodbye’s to their mothers and entered the nursery.
“Good morning my little rascals!”



The children laughed, then said “good morning” too.
“I want to tell you about something I would love to do with you!”
Curious the children listened.
“I would love to make a Christmas play with you!”
A loud “Yippieh!” was yelled by all the children.

“Is it for church?”, Rosie Löffel asked, “My older brother told me about… Christmas… plays…” Her last words were said thoughtfully.
“Yes, it is, my dear. We will tell the Christmas story with Maria and Joseph and Jesus.”



“And the shepherds!”, Monty said smiling, “I want to be a shepherd! They have a wand!” Katie laughed, “Not a wand, you mean a crook! A wand is something that wizards have.”
“Oh.”, he blushed, “I’m sorry.” “You mustn’t feel ashamed, everything is ok. And of course you can be a shepherd.”
“Yay!”
The mouse woman looked softly at the children, “Can you tell me, which characters we need, beside the shepherds?”
“Maria and Joseph!”, yelled Ron Petite and his sister answered, “And Jesus!”



“And an angel!”, said Maizie.
“And those bad men in the taverns.”, Elizabeth grimaced, “They are so cruel!”
Katie clapped her hands, “Wonderful! You already know a lot of things about the Christmas story.”
“And we need the three kings!”, Rosie meant.
“Oh, right! We can also add them to the play.”, the nursery teacher nodded, “They visited little Jesus later and not directly at the Christmas night.”
“Really?”
“Yes, they did. Should I read the Christmas story to you? Than we can think of our play.”



“Oh yes please!”, all children yelled in a choir and Katie started to read. About the population census of imperator Augustus, the long journey of Maria and Joseph, the stable and the birth of Jesus…

After that all the children immediately started to make costumes, using paper and some fabric Katie brought.
Sympathetically she watched the children.



This years Christmas play would be for sure a huge success!

I hope you enjoyed the story :). Does someone of you have snow already in their country? Here in Germany it's very cold, but unfortunately no snow had fallen until now :(.

Yours Kyra

  5. Wonderful story, I love that your critters enjoy the snow, it's so peaceful. We have already had snow but it was early... today it rained and it froze as ice... Not as fun! :( The preschool children are so funny and adorable with all their answers to Katie. I love your little stories each day, I take my iPad and while eating my breakfast I take a look at them! It starts my day off and puts me in a good mood :)

  12. I agree with what Emily F said...Snow makes Christmas more romantic. But as I live in Orlando, we don't even have winter, not alone snow.

    The first two photos just melt my heart. How cute the little mice look! And I look forward to the Christmas play.
