It's Christmas Time in the City..........

A lovely Christmas morning

It all starts with the traditional Kulich Bread.

 which we eat as we open our presents

Creative Child drew me a pen and ink of one of my favorite saints..St. Irenaus.  It's a treasure!

 Youngest Child gave Tony and I this framed picture of Thoughtful Child's Graduation...but Eldest Child was hiking at that time in the mountains of Spain.  So, this is our version of photo shopping him into the picture!

 A Christmas Miracle!  The Bonsai tree LIVED.  Lovely Daughter loves it!

 We look at all the ornaments and try to remember where and when they came to us. 

And we thank Jesus for coming to us, "whose delight is to be among the children of men."
