Acorn Nativity

I may have been too hasty.

After my last post, the family was in an uproar.

“Declare yourself the winner,” they snorted.  “Oh….no….you didn’t!”

“Did you tell them?” my brother said? 

“Did you tell them about acorn Mary and acorn Joseph and baby Jesus in an acorn manger?”

“Did they see the acorn camel and the acorn sheep?”

I can see his point…..an acorn nativity does score high marks for creativity…..

….but in the overall competitiion…..

….some may feel that this pillow made by one of my sisters gave the nativity a run for its money.

Some might think burlap + tiny tea-stained cotton balls = mirror ball trophy.

After a second look, I thought to myself…..was I too hasty to claim victory….too overconfident in the fabulousness of my gift…

…..too quick to decide and boldly declare myself the winner….

Really….

I don’t think so…

…..for you see….the other entries had their selling points….

…..but when the dust clears and the Christmas wrapping settles….we all know….

…..the flatware takes the cake.

Have a blessed and Happy New Year!
