O come, let us adore Him!

Happy Feast of the Epiphany! Are you enjoying the Twelfth Day of Christmas as much as we are? We completed our Nativity set early this morning with the addition of the three wise men and their camel, and listened to a really rockin' rendition of "We Three Kings" while getting ready for church. Mass was beautiful, enriched for the kids by these coloring pages and this worksheet for Dylan, which he completed easily before Mass began. (I really like these worksheets. I think I'm going to start printing one out every Sunday.) We've watched "The Very First Noel" (twice), and we loved it every bit as much as we did last year! We read The Legend of Old Befana, and created some beautiful Epiphany stars to match those in the story. For dinner we'll be enjoying the last of a delicious stew I made last night, and then I'll be heading to work. Our Christmas tree will come down tomorrow. If all goes as planned, we'll be resuming lessons early in the week. Life as I know it will return to "normal". I hope I'm ready for it! :)

I'm going to have to get "The First Noel" movie. You and Jill both recommended it. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. :-)

Yes, we also watched "The Very First Noel" yesterday. Perfect Epiphany movie. We saw a review in the National Catholic Register awhile back and decided to buy it. Well worth it. I've never had a cartoon make me get the shivers! And the music is great.
Anyway, sounds like a great day. As always, I love hearing about your fun, faith-filled days. You are such a wonderful mom.
