I bet this is how baby Jesus was swaddled. Cause I'm pretty sure Mary didn't have a Miracle Blanket. And I bet he looked a lot like that too, because I'm pretty sure he wasn't blond and blue eyed either.

  2. I got a couple for you that will only occupy them for a few minutes.
    Go to google.com & type in 'let it snow' and watch. Let the screen fog up & then you can use your mouse to write in the fog.
    Also, you can type in 'do a barrel roll' ... it's awesome.

  3. That is awesome! Thanks for buying me a little "I can hear my own thoughts" time!

    I wrote a post this summer of really dumb ideas to keep my kids busy that might be adaptable for winter fun with a little creativity. You can find it here.

  6. When I am dead and my kids celebrate Christmas they will say 'Remember how Mom went on and on about Jesus did not have blond hair and blue eyes??'
    Hopefully they chuckle :)
