11 days: past the half way point

We're down to 11 days now, and that means we are more than half way through our nativity calendar.  Our calendar is one of our very favorite seasonal items; it has 24 doors surrounding a stable painted on a metal backing and each door hides one part of what, by Christmas morning, becomes a very charming nativity scene.  It was a gift from my parents the year before Calvin was born and back then Jon and I would take turns opening the door of the day and adding a figure to the stable scene.  That first year we fought over who would be the odds and who the evens, and Jon places each of his characters defiantly on the roof of the stable.  Now, of course, it's all Calvin, but it brings us even more joy to watch him eagerly attend the task than to take part in it ourselves.
