Nativity

Every year my family does a little Nativity play with the younger kids. By now, there is quite an accumulation of costumes and props and Jesus babies. One year when we were assigning parts, Sierra, my middle one refused any suggestion. I finally just asked her what she wanted to be. “I want to be the Christmas ghost that scares the Wise Men!” So that year we had a little deviation from the traditional story and Sierra’s fascination with skirting the edge of ordinary was solidified.
