I just had to re-type this because I’m pretty sure I have to say my favorite part of our Christmas celebration is the Mass. But a VERY close second is our At Home Family Nativity Play that we put on each Christmas evening.

A few years ago, I sat down and typed up a script, based on Luke 2:1-20 and Matthew 2:1-12. You can find the script here at Catholic Culture.
|who says there wasn’t a hippo in the stable?|
note: I put together the script at Catholic Culture after this Christmas. I wanted one that was mostly just the Bible and couldn’t find one, so I made it!
By the way: giant baby spotted hanging out with the stuffed nativity.
And, um, my book . . . available for preorder . . . great for kids, grandkids, Godchildren, etc., etc. . . .

Right now it says it will ship mid-March. My publisher says it’s more likely to ship in February, but they can’t be sure. So right now, it says March. Hey, it’s only $8.99!
If you order the book as a gift on Amazon, you can print out this lovely certificate to stuff in a stocking or tuck in a card. Just click on the link to download the printable PDF!

And, it’s Sunday, so here’s what Lulu and I wore to Mass:
|Me . . .
Sweater: Banana Republic
Skirt: Gymboree (the girls had dresses that matched it a couple years ago)
Shoes: Steve Madden
Lulu . . .
I’d like to point out that at 3 1/2 weeks old, Lulu has perfected the official What I Wore Sunday “Random Sideways Look Off Into the Distance.” She’s a real pro.
Thanks to the Ladies at Fine Linen and Purple for hosting.
Have yourselves a Merry Little Christmas!
