In our kitchen, we have this cute greenhouse window above the sink.
And for the past month, this simple little flowerpot nativity scene has been displayed in the window.
It's one of my favorite Christmas decorations. Jesus is sleeping peacefully in his
flowerpot manger. Mary looks so happy and content. And Joseph isn't letting the fact that he seems to have lost his left pom-pom arm stop him from singing. When I think about how the Holy Family must have feeling during the emotional days that followed Jesus' birth, this is exactly what I picture. Except, I always picture Joseph with both arms.
However, for a few weeks, something suspicious was happening with this nativity scene. This is what it would look like when my mom came down each morning...
