Joyous feast of the Nativity

(I sewed circle skirts for my daughters...here is Olivia with her friend Sasha after church on Nativity)

I greet you all with the feast of the Nativity of Christ, which we celebrated 2 days ago, December 25, 2011 (old calendar) or January 7, 2012 (new calendar)!My sister and her husband came down from Canada (a 13 hour drive in the car for them, they headed back early this morning, so are probably getting home just now).My 1 year old niece giving my dad a homemade present...
Today, my dad read prayers over my youngest sister's baby boy, Theodore. He is 8 days old now, and the naming-prayers are usually done on this day. I am going to be his Godmother! Hopefully, his baptism will be in about a month.
