On Sunday we put away Christmas. In the Catholic Chruch, the Christmas season officially ends when Jesus gets baptized. I love this because while the rest of the world packs up after presents are opened, we get to soak in this glorious time of year for an extra 3 week.
But, now it’s over, which of course means that we had to pack away our decorations. I am very sad about this – they added so much cheer to the condo and now our walls seem so bare!
Here are a few highlights from our first Christmas as a little family.
^ We decided to make our 1st turkey dinner. Notice there is no turkey on the table. Nope. It was not done in time, so we got to enjoy all the amazingly delicious side dishes.
^ Look at those thigh rolls ❤
^ Our favorite boardgame! We got Ticket to Ride for Christmas and we play it at least 3 times a week.
^ The ridiculous dice flinger. One of the best & worst parts of the game.
^ Fr. James Mallon giving a homily on Christmas morning at our church.
