I had been feeling a bit conflicted about coming home for Christmas. There was a part of me that thought I should rather be on the road, no matter what.

Either way today was Christmas Eve, so I put on a nice shirt and a Santa hat:


Then I went to the supermarket to do some last-minute grocery shopping. Of course it turned out that everyone had had the same idea (of going shopping, not of wearing Santa hats):


So it took forever.

Then I went to Berlin to spend the day with my brother, but most importantly with this little dude:


He had come a long way.

It was decided that we were to go to church and watch a bunch of kids perform a nativity play:


The church was crowded, and the child actors were trying very hard to recite their lines about stars and kings and Baby Jesus.


It was boring but adorable.

    Little dude portrait is overwhelmingly charming.
    I have come back four times to have another peek.

    Second that, Barb B. Love the new word, too. Had a hard time myself focusing on the nativity play and sermon this year and trust me, certainly not for a lack of cuteness dressed up as sheep. Didn’t hurt to allow my thoughts to drift and just be, though. Good to be home, despite everything changing including oneself.
