I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do but ended entering this. I chose it because for me, as a Christian, this is the true meaning of Christmas. Christ came into the world and paved the way for the ultimate gift: eternal life. It is easy to get into the mindset of focusing on everything you want to get for Christmas. But ultimately, that doesn't matter.

So I did this drawing to represent this. On the left I have the nativity scene and on the right I have Palm Sunday. I chose to do these two scenes because they represent the humility of Christ from beginning to end. And there's a cross connecting them, representing His final sacrifice and ultimate gift to us.

Working with young children, December is a time of extra crafts, nativity plays and Christmas parties.

Lemon Drop shared Christmas blessings on all my cards this year. She brought a smile to many faces with her cuteness. :)

Christmas has come and Santa has brought a healthy diet to my little-feathered babies. He is encouraging them to eat healthier to live longer and share happy moments with her mom!
Merry Christmas to you all! kisses from Ibi and BB!
