The Nativity–the Kelley family version

christmas '99The first Christmas after we started going to church as a family, I decided to take a picture for our family Christmas card.  Call it divine inspiration, or whatever you want, but I slapped some head scarves on my accommodating children (then 5 and 2) and sent them out to the back yard.   I had 1 picture left in my non-digital camera (remember those days?).  One shot was all I had.   We talked about the story of the night Jesus was born, and about Joseph and Mary, I told them to pretend….and snap! this was the shot I took.  Beautiful!   Since I am not a gifted photographer, like my friend, Misty, I totally give God ALL the credit for this picture.

Merry Christmas!
