Merry Christmas!

"Any agnostic or atheist whose childhood has known a real Christmas has ever afterwards, whether he likes it or not, an association in his mind between two ideas that most of mankind must regard as remote from each other; the idea of a baby and the idea of unknown strength that sustains the stars. His instincts and imagination can still connect them, when his reason can no longer see the need of the connection; for him there will always be some savor of religion about the mere picture of a mother and a baby; some hint of mercy and softening about the mere mention of the dreadful name of God."
~G. K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man

I *love* your nativity blocks! Don't tell me you were crafting away while lying still in bed?

No indeed. Those are courtesy of Wondergirl and Toolboy. Some are from last year and some were for this year.

I'm becoming a fan of that Mr. Chesterton - and your little ones are so beautiful!
