Our Nativity Set

My favorite is the little goat-boy (bottom left corner, nice necklace). Over the years the goat-boy has been in charge of different animals, but currently he seems to be responsible for the llama, a camel, the donkey, the little black goat plus a little blue one, a stripey rabbit, a red cat, and two ducks (one yellow, one red). This goat-boy stays busy. Some years he gets to be Jesus, which I don’t really believe is a better gig. Personally, I’d stick with goats, which I imagine are much more tractable than humans.

And Joseph’s hair isn’t faring too well (he’s the pale, startled-looking oriental doll in the center), but I figure that’s just the price of dadhood.
