FOLLOW YOUR STAR
We are going to start packing up the Christmas decorations this weekend. Our "tradition" is we do this the first weekend after Three King's Day. Ok, really our tradition is that we are lazy. But also, once all the bother of putting up the tree and all the trimmings is over, I truly delight in them! Especially the tree, lit up at night: so beautiful. And I don't start feeling that the decorations are unseasonal until, oh, say, close to Valentine's Day.
These little blobby snow babies actually have quite a bit of personality when you look at them closely. I like the hopeful but not entirely confident expression on the face of the baby holding up a star.
