The year was I think 1994.
A new baby graced the house that year. Their first. The mama was busy with mamadom and the papa somehow had time to create a ceramic Nativity scene as a gift for his bride. He was in the midst of a new job and school on the side. Sanding and painting and firing took time at the base arts and crafts center. I never knew he was working on something like that.
My Christmas treasure is this. Made for me by my love!!
