Christmas Tragedy.

Around the holidays you hope for things like Mother's Day Miracles (probably the only people that will get that reference don't even read my blog). But instead when I was setting up Christmas in my house we had a tragedy. I open one to find this:
Armless hands, and a present that can not be held.
You see that shocked look on his face?! He is wondering why he has no hands.
He should look more like this:
This is my husband's favorite nativity from Chile. I felt terrible, when I told him, he said what the google happened? I said I don't know, and started laughing uncontrollably. I do that (laugh) whenever my husband appears to be truly shocked, (probably because hardly anything shocks him).
PS sorry for the sorry blogposts lately. I'm terribly uncomfortable, and I'm hoping this baby comes in a matter of days or hours, not a week or more, I don't know how much longer I can last. Almost everyone I see tells me I either look miserable or really tired. Both would be the case. Today I looked in the mirror and realized what they are talking, the circles under my eyes look about as bad as a meth addict. I can't help it, I sleep as much as possible, but that isn't much, I'm too uncomfortable and any sleep I do get is not very restful. My husband says I'm miserable but no where near labor miserable based on our last experience. I told him maybe I was just handling it better this time, he said that was true, but I still have a ways to go. Six days until my due date. We'll see if I get lucky. Plus I'm hoping I don't get as miserable as I did last time.


  1. That is very unfortunate. I love the picture, the guy really does looked shocked because his hands just fell right off. I am sure you can come up with some sort of religious meaning/parable to teach some lesson to your son about our hands and service at Christmas time.

  2. I truly feel for your pregnancy discomfort. I can't sleep either but have so much farther to go! You are almost there Le, hang in there and don't chop any more hands off! I hope you have some good glue somewhere in the house!

  3. Not only does the wiseman look totally shocked, his camel is laughing at him!
