We celebrated Christmas on the 24th this year because of Daddy's work schedule. Since the shopping and wrapping and cooking and everything else was already taken care of (ha!), we took baths and gussied up for the Vigil Mass on Saturday afternoon. We didn't even have to rush to get there in time, either (wait..."took baths"?--ha! "get there on time"--ha!).
The kids sang in the choir onstage for an hour and a half and there were no public disasters or flash floods (ha). And we came home and opened gifts and no one even complained about receiving socks (ahem). And I didn't ruin the icing for the gingerbread and give up and just give folks plain, undecorated gingerbread this year instead (ha).
|the traditional unicorn gingerbread cookie, of course!|
|See? Picture perfect!|
