We've been busy recovering from crazy back issues (just me) and visiting with Brian's mom who came in for a visit (all of us). Last night we had our Epiphany party and pageant with some of our fellow homeschoolers.
Proud little shepherd
There were other children there but I try not to post pictures of others without permission and I'm too lazy to get permission. So there's my two singers. David and Luke stayed home because David wasn't feeling well. Do you know how EASY it is to take two older children somewhere when you're used to four?? Oh my goodness. I actually...wait for it...had a CONVERSATION. I know.
After Mass this morning these gifts showed up under the tree!
Books...to help us grow in wisdom! Get it? Wisdom? Wise men? To search for Jesus? Yes?
David is convinced that these and the pajamas from Christmas Eve were left by "Father Christmas." Apparently we are British now.
Love this face.
Perfect books for John Paul on Leonardo's inventions.
These Golden Books are super sweet. I love that they look beautiful and are board books!
After dropping my mother in law off at the airport we had an Epiphany treat at a real life restaurant!
Who knows how to get a meal for a family of six at a fancy restaurant for $9 plus tip? This girl.
Home again home again to do our traditional Epiphany house blessing...
