What's His Name?

We are still in the process of getting out all of our Christmas stuff and decorating our house. As we were unloading boxes last night I found one of the boys' favorite Christmas decorations....their Little People Nativity Set! We've had this set for quite a few years, and every year the boys love setting it up in the playroom and reenacting the story of Jesus' birth {and a few other Bible stories that they manage to throw into the mix too}.
So last night I sent Grant down to the playroom to set up the Nativity Set just like we do every year. He left, and Jason & I continued decorating the living room with garland and lights. After about ten minutes Grant came back into the room with two of the shepherds in his hand, and with the most serious face ever he asked "Which one of these is Moses?" Jason and I both started laughing:) After checking with Henry about the man's correct name, Grant remember that it was Joseph who was in the manger that night with baby Jesus and not Moses!
I think somebody may be getting some Bible Story Flash Cards in their stocking this year:)
Pin It!

Moses, Joseph. . . one of those Hebrew names! :)

I love that Nativity set. I've given it as a gift to a couple of families, and every time I see it I find myself wishing we'd had one of those when my fellows were little!

Where did you find this set? I love the little people! I have a wooden set that I found on clearance for $4 last year, but would love to find one like this! Moses and Joseph are easy to confuse! That is so funny and cute! :)

That is so cute! I actually am still learning too ;-) Whenever I teach Sunday school...sometimes the kids know more than me :-) I think flash cards are a perfect idea ;-)

My oldest did something similar. We were quizzing him on the Nativity set, he correctly identified Jesus and Mary. We asked 'and who is Mary's husband?' he said 'Um, Mo-ah!' After a few repeats and some confused looks from my husband and me, we realized he meshed Noah and Moses together.
