Christmas decorations

Steve and Michael pulled out the boxes of Christmas decorations the other day. (I, as usual, am a grinch.) Among the decorations was Michael's crèche, which I think was a gift from Aunt Angela a few years ago.

Michael set it up rather proudly. But something was missing. Daddy Joseph? Check. Mommy Mary? Check. Animals? Check. Shepherds? Check.

Baby Jesus wasn't there.

Don't worry. Michael has solved the problem.

That's his toy cat sleeping angelically, being worshiped by cherubim and seraphim.

But wait! There's more!

We have another crèche. Although I think we bought it Up There, it's a pretty traditional one, with no Inuvialuit or Gwich'in characters. No northerners at all, in fact.

Well, that was the case until this year. If you look closely, you may notice that Michael has made a few additions.
