Raising my kids, moment by moment,
is the hardest thing I have ever done.
because I know it matters.
because I want to do it right.
because I know I won't.
because I still must try.
And mostly because there is no way I can do it alone.
I made this blog as a place to gather the inspiration as well as somewhere to put the ridiculous amount of photos I take, trying desperately to see this crazy time in our lives for what it really is--soul stretching wonderfulness, I won't want to forget.

JOY to my world.
I have looked and looked for just the right nativity.
(I'm a tad picky, drives everyone including myself bonkers)
I wanted a pretty one.
But also unique. Classy. Elegant. Warm. Inspiring.
(I ask a lot of my nativities apparently.)
Then in the end I bought this one.
And it's perfect.
Look at Mary just inviting my children to come, touch, learn, feel.
(Joseph looks kinda more like a shepherd, which there are none,
I almost added the farmer from our little people barn, but it didn't quite fit.)
Darling little wise man, waving "Hi" to baby Jesus.
And their even more darling camel!
I just love watching my kids play with this, by the light of the little glowing star and "Silent Night" playing softly
(might even keep the batteries changed in this one!)
