We had a lovely Christmas.  The children awoke before 4 am!  What a way to wake up!  They enjoyed opening presents and finding the baby Jesus in the manger.  The manger is taken out at the beginning of Advent.  Pieces of yarn representing straw are placed in the manger one at a time for every good deed that is done so that Jesus will have a nice soft bed on His birthday.  christmas-08-1

We went to the Extraordinary form of the Mass and John and Kevin served.  It was a beautiful Mass.  Of course, this was Veronica’s first Christmas.  In what is becoming a family tradition, she wore the dress that her sisters wore for their first Christmas’s as did their cousin 18 years ago.  veronica-first-christmas
