The Navitity Scene

Tis the season. That trusty old nativity scene came out of hiding this afternoon. The one where at least one of the shepherds isn't snowy white. Its old and the paint is faded and kind of weird looking in a wonderful sort of way.

And of course, my son Micah appreciates that sort of thing. Well, okay... not exactly. What he actually appreciates is the oppurtunity to torture these righteous plastic individuals in varied and creative ways.

"I'm not a sheep!
Mary exclaims, her arms thrown up in the air- aghast at this THING which lays in the manger before her.

Somebody! Get this sheep out of my baby's manger!


Get That Child Off That Filthy LAMB! Do you know where that thing has been?

Oh, too funny.

And I too yearn for more time to create. I would love to be able to play more than "the itsy bitsy spider" on the piano without the whining and sticky fingers that come along with that. I'm only beginning the stage of the no no no no no no time for myself. I count my blessings every day, but...sigh. To play a sonata again. Heck, I would love to be able to pee without the whining in my ear.
