Little Donkey & Eyelashes

Little donkey, little donkey,
On the dusty road,
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.
Been a long time, little donkey,
Through the winter's night.
Don't give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehem's in sight.

Ring out those bells tonight,
Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Follow that star tonight,
Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Little donkey, little donkey,
Had a heavy day.
Little donkey, carry Mary
Safely on her way.

Do not falter little donkey, there's a star ahead.
It'll guide you, little donkey, to the cattle shed.
Little donkey, carry Mary
Safely on her way.
We sing this sweet carol when Ella plays with the beanie-style Nativity set ... she cuddles Baby Jesus and the animals. My new nickname for her is Ella Elizabeth Eyelashes. I like to give her fluttering eyelash (butterfly) kisses on her cheek.
She knows her whole name now, and calls each of us her middle name. So now we're Gramma Elizabeth, O'Pa Elizabeth and Aunt Bethany Elizabeth! So sweet.

So beautiful! Oh I love the idea of beanie baby nativity set. Little A played with our playmobil set this year. Any time we said something about Jesus she would run to find the playmobil bag (oh the little pieces...oh my) and say 'baby Jesus'. So cute. And E's eyelashes are amazing!!
