It's been a long and busy day but I wanted to quickly pop in with a short post. We took my dad's lighted ceramic Christmas tree to the nursing home and set it up in his room this afternoon. Although he hasn't had a real Christmas tree at home for many years, he has very much enjoyed this little lighted tree, turning it on at dusk each evening. So we trust he will enjoy having it in his room.
Next week we plan to take up his creche, complete with a wooden stable. He made many of these for gifts over the years, and I thought it would be fun to show what the stable looks like. The creche figures in the scene I have are quite unattractive and really don't fit the scale of the stable, but I hope eventually to find nicer ones.
