A Turtle Dove at the Manger

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Want you be mine?

Don't know where that came from.  

However, it is a beautiful, sunny 70 degrees today
in our neighborhood.
Enough wind to rattle the outside decorations.
I keep thinking the cat is scratching. 

Oh well, let me tell you about our little STAR, 
or should I say, 
Our sweet, "turtle dove."

The trees in the church were beautiful.

The very humble center, the manger, 
was the most spectacular. 
Although simple, it would become the GRAND.

Our little turtle dove was the first to welcome the Christ Child.

Can you spot him now with his beak?

The children were just precious and PERFECT!
Connor said every part and sang every song
while of course, waving at the crowd.

We enjoyed a few minutes with our star

and these angels.

Connor and Cora had an appointment to visit
another guy.

Santa thinks they've been nice.
We don't do naughty!

Wellllll.  Maybe sometimes...

The family wanted to visit Opryland Hotel last night, 
but the battery in my car died.
We'll make that trip another time.
