Christmas Eve: You may have heard that Mari P was sick in the AM. She stayed on the couch for most of the morning.
|poor sick girl|
|the rest of us did PT with grandpa|
|and we baked cookies|
|had to make some spritz! (I let Mariposa work the cookie|
press when she was feeling better and after she washed all
the germs off her hands)
|Bunny was a nun this year, "Mother Prioress"|
|James was a Roman soldier|
|Mariposa was feeling better so she was|
able to be an angel as planned
|We got a great spot, front row on the side of the church so|
grandpa could stretch out his leg (knee replacement in Nov).
It was wonderful not to sit in the long pews! Better to manage
all the activity with the kiddos.
At one point the angels came in. They were discussing what kinds of gifts to bring to baby Jesus. Mariposa had a cute little line, and she was fabulous!! I am so glad she was feeling better and was able to participate.
|Mariposa is toward the end of this line|
|James is the first Roman, in the red and gold helmet|
(Bunny is sitting in front of the altar)
