    I must tell you what I made! I am pleased with it.

    As many of you know, we celebrate His birth
    during Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), an 8-day
    period in October. We build little temporary huts in
    our back yards and eat there, play there, etc. We
    decorate them with tree boughs, fruit, art, etc. So
    I got an idea.

    Taking photos of my grandaughter and my
    grandson, I used Publisher to block out all parts of
    the photos I did not want, then made that area light

    My granddaughter had her hands together as
    though praying, so I left her head, hair, white shirt,
    arms, and hands in the photo.

    My grandson is somewhat dark-skinned, with
    black hair, so this helped. In the photo, he is very
    young and is laughing.

    I placed my granddaughter so that she is above
    him, like she is flying, looking down at him. Using
    the computer, I drew wings and a flowing skirt on
    her. One heel and a whole foot are sticking out of
    the bottom of the skirt. I surrounded the baby
    with a swaddling wrap and hay.

    Wow! It looks great! I can't wait to hang it in my
    sukkah. I plan to make other relevant pictures for
    it using photos of my other grandchildren.

    That's cute!

    And since His birth was close to six months after Passover, your timing is about right and symbolically a bulls-eye.

    Thanks, Tauf! I wishh my reeal computer was
    hooked up to Internet so I could show it, because
    it was very easy and a good way to decorate.

    I thought, as I made them, that it might be a good
    way for those who use Christmas cards to make
    their own.
