It's been fun for both Luke & Lydia to reposition them.
As fun as this sounds, it's hasn't quite been as neat as I had hoped. As of yesterday, lost somewhere in the 7+ rooms of our house are a poor Mary, a donkey, a lamb and dare I confess...
TWO BABY JESUS!!!!!
So HEARTBROKEN I've been to know that the "STAR" of the show is possibly gone for good from two scenes.
It was JESUS!!!! Jesus... right here in MY bed!
WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED!?!?!!!!
He had been buried deep under the quilts. I'd like think that Lydia, with all the best intentions, tucked Him sweetly into bed with a little kiss. Maybe not though. It could be that she and Luke were tossing Him around trying to get our dog to fetch. Poor Jesus.

HIS "great" aunt)
"Life is not taken away. It is just changed."
We don't even have a right to know.
SO... how do I make you laugh today????

I certainly can't speak from experience!
How do you truly teach gratitude?
I do my best to model it, but I myself am too often guilty of greed. That saddens me, and I definitely don't mean to be!
I imagine it can only bring genuine joy to our hearts!

and then Luke boldy announces,
"I think Lydia's going to have a baby soon."
I burst out laughing, and yes-
Luke away from the reason WHY Lydia CAN'T be having a baby. UGH

Now, THAT'S what I'm talkin' about!!

The gel, made with a super-absorbent polymer, soaks up water and stores it in several layers of tiny bubbles. When heated by fire, the gel is boiled away one layer at a time, protecting the surface below from extreme heat for long periods.
After a fire, it washes away with water and is biodegradable.
The gel was originally developed after a firefighter in Florida, John Bartlett, noticed that disposable diapers didn't burn during fires. He discovered that the absorbent powder used in those diapers could be converted to a gel that, when mixed with water, could be sprayed on houses and foliage, Fredley said.
In his living room last week, Fredley mixed water with a quarter-size blob of the Barricade gel -- which looks like milky-colored, translucent shampoo -- spread it on his hand and blasted his palm and fingers with a propane torch. His skin was undamaged.
Saleen said the gel won't replace the retardants currently dropped from planes because it doesn't halt fires for as long as traditional retardants. It's about the same price as other fire retardants, he said.
But it's valuable to firefighters because it's mixed with water using a 1-to-99 ratio, meaning little gel is needed to fight a large fire. Other fire retardants are mixed in a 1-to-4 or 1-to-5 ratio, Saleen said. That makes Barricade more portable, allowing firefighters to transport it closer to a fire quickly, Saleen said" - taken from http://www.firefightingnews.com/article.cfm?articleID=13801
Don't you feel a little bit smarter now after reading this? ha ha
Thanks, Uncle Jim!
