No List, It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Sunday


It is always my little brother's duty to set up the manger scene at my parents' house ... he seems to think outside the box.





This year he opted to line all the adults in the front of the manger, leaving Jesus out of sight, alone in the back of the manger. Plus, the sheep all seem to enjoy the company of the cow.
