No Nativity Exclusivity: Everyone Welcome

Last week, we told you about J.'s soon-to-be-three-year-old daughter Natalie's Fisher-Price nativity set, which included special guests Big Bird and a baby dinosaur. We got some fabulous fan response to that one, including a preacher in New York who asked to use the example in his sermon, who agreed that her Nativity could be more than naivety.
Here are two of our favorite emails we received on the topic:
Georiga Del Freo from Erie PA said:
I was laughing out loud when I read your article about your daughter Natalie. We also have the Fisher-Price Nativity set for my three-year old nephew and had a similar experience. After setting up the usual attendees, he responded, "But we need everyone else. Everyone needs to see Baby Jesus!" The attached picture shows who all came to see Baby Jesus at our house. You'll notice some pretty famous people in there including Noah's wife, Robin Hood and the Incredible Hulk!Maybe this is just the latest trend among three-year-olds in Western Pennsylvania. A fan in Texas had another perspective, though:

What Natalie did with her Little People school bus intrigued me. You see, I know how much time her daddy spends on a bus taking the Lord around the country to people. So I couldn't help but wonder if, even at the age of three she knew what she was doing by placing a "wise man" on her bus who, just like her daddy, was carrying Jesus to the people. Hmmm... Of course for the rest of the guys in the band, this also begs the question "who's the angel and who's the barnyard animal?
