Away In a Manger

Once upon a time, I started work on a very special manger scene. I made 5 of them to give to family with only 4 of the main players plus the stable with the star.
This pattern comes from Kenna Reynolds and Donna Malone. It depicts children in a play and is, by far, the cutest manger scene I've ever, well, seen! Anyway, I FINALLY finished the last of my manger scene a week ago.
This is the one piece I was really dragging my feet on because of all of the detail.

I just love that one of the wisemen is in a wheel chair. Having a mentally handicap daughter myself, it just made it that much more real.
Angels proclaiming the birth!
The donkey was a horse that they threw a pillow on!
I still have to add to the other scenes that I gave out as gifts. I think my sister in law's is the only one closest to being finished. I owe her the Wisemen and I think that's it!
What does your Manger Scene look like?
