Christmas Lessons Learned

We made two parent mistakes this Christmas season but now we know....

1. We arrived for the family Christmas Eve Mass 35 minutes early and barely squeezed into the overflow Mass held in the school gym. Baby Jesus shoots, He scores!!!

2. We waited until 7:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve to put together a plastic kitchen with a thousand pieces. Two hours and two glasses of wine later, it was assembled. Whew!

We are so blessed and grateful for the birth of our Savior!


  1. great family shot, Emily!
    I'll keep the "Christmas Eve toy assembly" cautionary tale in mind.
