Of all the things my father has made, this is the dearest to me.
I asked him not long ago to carve a nativity set for me. While we were on vacation, he carved Joseph and Mary. He would've carved Jesus too then if he had the wood but there wasn't a source for that sort of thing there.
Next he'll make one for each of my sisters and my brother.
He's also trying his hand at making icons. Do you know what he used to make the little finials on the top? Can you guess?
My parents and Seth are visiting for a week. My sister Jennifer and her family surprised us and drove them here Tuesday night. We spent yesterday afternoon crafting, all of us, while the Baby napped.
I can't wait to show you what Seth is working on. He's here on the sofa now waiting patiently for me to see if they are dry up on top of the refrigerator. I can't keep him waiting too long.
He has a buzz cut for the summer...you should see it.
