This was the first year both kids were too old to be part of the Christmas Pageant. However, continuing my favorite part of the pageant – the helpers who come back – they were both helpers. And Brendan sang again this year too. It was a great Mass with lots of enthusiasm from the kids involved. And also – the kids made the front page of the Globe (and the Globe’s Instagram!).
Another chill and easy holiday – with everyone living so close it made for a nice day. The kids enjoyed their gifts (a Nintendo Switch and games for Aidan, an American Girl doll and styling head for Brendan). Dinner was with everyone at our home. It was a much easier night without boarding a plane like last year!
