Celebrating Nativity

It's been a hard week. Rob spent much of his time with his parents.  My father-in-law has been sick & passed away Thurs. evening. The funeral will be this coming Thursday. My husband wore some very nice shoes he gave him to church.  
Today has been a good day!  We celebrated the Lord's Nativity!  It's Dec. 25th on the old (Julian) calendar.
After receiving the saffron linen napkins last week, I was eager to put the linen tablecloth on, and it's probably been about a year since I did.
My husband made these votive candle holders from cedar logs.
 Sushi with Sarah & her mom, Magdalena.
George is now 2 months old.  He's smiling more & more.
