Twas the Night Before

All bathed and groomed, excitedly they dressed in their new Christmas best. 

The tree had been trimmed awaiting the placement of the angel.

Soon we'd be listening to the birth story of Jesus at our traditional Christmas Eve Mass.  But not before a few gifts were to be given.

When the miraculous birth had been celebrated, we'd surround ourselves with homemade lasagna, cookies and family.

Not to forget a special Christmas Eve visit from the man up North.

As the clock neared midnight, the kids snuggled into their beds.

For in the morning, the long awaited celebration begins!
