In the spirit of the season, name 4-5 things that have made you smile recently.

Bad Nativity of the Day: Evidently the angel garbled the message, because these people were clearly expecting a girl.

Interesting yet strange too, I'm always amazed by the many looks across the country - I esp loved the ones that brought in live animals the week of b/c those were always catchy and kid friendly, Lol.  Do you set up these "bad" nativity scenes or only judge them?

1. Getting a 4.0 in my statistics class.

2. Watching my dog go up stairs while wearing a cone of shame. 

3. Listening to the music my husband has been composing.

4. Seeing the snow fall.

"Yes, I collect bad Nativities and publish one a day all through Advent." ------- I remember the Christmas we were in Rome that we children were fascinated by the profusion of huge and extremely kitschy nativities in the churches.

DS gives me unexpected hugs a lot, warms my heart!  He is going to be 11 in two short weeks and I hope he never outgrows that.
