Hurry! We don't want to miss the Baby Jesus
Well, Christmas is all but done and over here.
We had our family get together yesterday, which ran really late and I wasn't the least bit sure we were going to make it to church. As we were rushing around getting ready, Jack was running around saying, "Hurry up Dave! We have to go see the baby Jesus." LOL
We've also noticed that Santa and the reindeer ate carrots and cookies;
worn new Christmas jammies that Mama somehow managed to make even though Mama does.not.sew.clothes (I have no idea how I pulled it off, with no pattern even, and they look pretty good);
and all the presents are opened (and paper and cardboard actually recycled this year, woohoo!).
There were a lot of thrift store/secondhand gifts this year (even from Santa), and honestly? I like it that way. It feels more thoughtful and less commercial somehow. (It certainly requires more thinking as it takes a lot longer to find appropriate gifts with that method. I started looking first thing in November.)
How about a peek in to the cabinet where that ridiculously large vintage nativity I mentioned earlier this season resides?
Jack counted yesterday - there are nine baby Jesus'. (Jesuses? How does one make a plural of Jesus?)
They are lovely though.
I hope you are all having a lovely holiday!
