I'm officially signing off here for a few days,but first I wanted to share the lovely picture above. I love the progression of faces on the angels, anticipation, marveling and then off into the Heavens singing...and Joseph looks so (appropriately!) tired! I've always had issues with shiny Nativity pictures with well rested, blonde people...ahem...most unlikely. ;) This painting is done by Brian Kershnik and might be my new favorite!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and enjoy the entire season!!
