Just a few more hours to go before Christmas and tonight, we feast! After hearing Christmas Eve Mass, Kayo, the girls and I will go see my family for Noche Bueña and opening of presents at midnight, which I am all excited for. Tomorrow will be another set of fun festivities with Kayo’s side of the family.
Our Christmas cards also arrived just in time and I’m pretty excited to give them away! This year, we decided to take individual black and white portraits instead of just one with everybody in it. Kayo designed the cards himself and I just love how they turned out! The girls’ photos are so adorable too, don’t you think?
So before I get ready for church and before we all dive into the merry making and gift giving, let me take this time to say a simple prayer for my family and yours…
May the light of God’s goodness overpower all that is dark and bad and difficult and painful in our lives. May we all soak in the faithful love of Christ and see everything that is good and beautiful around us no matter how flawed and imperfect the world may seem. May we celebrate with thankful hearts and a joyful spirit, and may we all have a meaningful and blessed Christmas!
Let the joyful celebrations begin!
