POTD: shepherd in the field

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Luke 2:13-14

Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2005, Take Two
Originally uploaded by radioflyer007.

Our past year was perhaps best summarized in these memorable quotes:

Travis >> comforting Nicole: “It’s okay, Sweetie, it’s okay.” (all the while gently stroking her hair) >> as Dee leans on the horn at a rude Boston driver, "Mommy! A train is coming!"

Nicole >> paper shopping bag and two purses on her shoulders: “Busy, shopping!” >> pausing mid-tantrum with tears midstream: “Mama wipe! Runny nose!”

Dee >> “Nicole, you do not wear underwear on top of your clothes. Give back Mommy’s underwear right now!” >> “Everybody pick a book for story time. Mommy picks Crate & Barrel.”

Steven >> trying to drill the idea into the children’s heads 10 times a night: “Who is Daddy’s favorite boy/girl!?” >> “Woo hoo! 6543 clicks on my top Flickr picture!”

Here is wishing you peace and love this Christmas.
