We wanted to have a relaxing Christmas day, so we opted for Christmas Eve mass. We weren't sure which to attend as non of them was at a really convenient time. Our choices were 1. dinner time 2. bedtime 3. after bedtime. We opted for the mass that ran slightly into bedtime and figured since we weren't going anywhere the next day (and actually the girls never even got dressed) they could skip tubs. This mass also happened to be the one with the Christmas Pageant and I thought Ella might be into watching it since we have the little manger set up at home. Well church was standing room only, complete with police detail outside for traffic, but they both did surprisingly well. There was tons of singing (which they both liked) and mass was still only 1 hour. Josie went right to bed when we got home. Ella set out cookies and milk for Santa and celery for the reindeer since mommy forgot to buy carrots, and then we read "twas the night before Christmas" and she was also off to bed.
She knew exactly which booboo was going to get the first new bandaid.
There are already too many cooks in the kitchen!
We hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!
