Awry in the manger, KC style

Sherri and I both have the same nativity scene by Fontanini, which, as I mentioned, is not only quite pretty, but quite unbreakable as well. My mom gave the main three pieces to us when we were in high school, and she added figurines every Christmas and Easter so we would have complete sets by the time we had our own homes. One year we both received goats in our Easter baskets because my mom declared we had both been as stubborn as a bunch of goats lately. Mom Thole does love her symbolism.

Anyway, apparently having the same nativity set is causing some confusion among the cousins, because when Brennan saw the pictures of Mary Clare setting up our nativity, he shot Sherri an accusing look and said, "Hey! What's Mary Clare doing with my animals?" 

Sorry, buddy. I'd try to explain it, but it's probably best to just blame Hunter.

  1. What a smart idea-stubborn as goats. If my mom believed in symbolism the way she does, I'd have about a hundred goats in my room...
