Jesus lives where?

While John and I were at Dollar Tree we saw some little plastic Bible figurines: David, Goliath, Moses, Jesus, etc. Each one came with a little story book. John and I chuckled at them at first, but then we thought that Ella might really love them. Sometimes Ella likes to have Jesus stand on the edge of her bed when she goes to sleep. The other night Ella told me something new that I didn't know about Jesus. This is how our conversation went...

Ella - "Mom, I have Jesus?"

I hand Ella the Jesus doll.

Ella - "Thanks mom! Jesus go home."

Me - "What? Jesus goes home?"

Ella - "No mom! Jesus sleep at his home."

Me - "Well where do you want me to put him? Where does Jesus live?"

Ella - "The temple!!!" She said this in such a matter of fact way.

I look around the room, and I don't know where to put the doll. By this time she was starting to get frustrated with me.

Me - "I don't know where you want me to put him."

Ella - "Right there mom, the temple!"

Ella was pointing at her Disney Princess clock. Apparently her clock is really a pink temple and Jesus lives in it!
