Christmas Day

Image
Christmas day was a more low key day for us than usual. We got the kids up and told them Santa had come. We did the the picture with them coming out and seeing the living room filled with presents. It was kind of magical. We opened presents which the kids probably enjoyed as much as playing with their new toys. Henry loved ripping opening the presents. It was special because he understands what things are and he got really excited about the presents as he opened them and saw what they were. Cosette was thrilled with all her presents. She would open one and yell "this is exactly what I wanted!". We then got ready and attended Christmas Day mass at St. John the Divine Cathedral. It is nice to have a some religious celebrating on Christmas. We attended services on Christmas Day at King's College when we lived in Cambridge and last year we attended it at St. Fin Barre's Cathedral in Ireland. It is becoming a tradition. The rest of the day we lazed around. The kids played…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! We all here hope that your day has been filled with joy and good cheer. I am sharing this video of Cosette telling the Nativity story which is fitting since it is Christmas day. I am so grateful for the Savior and this time of year to focus on him and his birth. The kids have a Christmas book about this story and the page that talks about baby Jesus says "And he is the reason for Christmas day!". He truly is. He is the gift. Merry Christmas to you all!

A little tree for our little apartment. Cosette is taller than our tree this year.

Saw some pretty great art. It is a really impressive collection for the size of the museum.
