Nativity with Angels

Advent-Christmas -
A Christmas drawing of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus with angels. 

I thought of this scene on Christmas Eve as we sang O Little Town of Bethlehem.  "For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above, while mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love."  

Unfortunately, my scan lost some of the subtle pinks and lavenders in the angel wings and robes.
