Merry Christmas

AND it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world should be enrolled.
This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria.
And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David,
To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child.



The door has its wreath,

Merry Christmas

all the house is decorated, the tree is up and the crib is set.

The crib is in progress

Today I will kept doing tidy up - never ends - laundry an more shopping in the afternoon.
Tomorow I will be baking since the begining of the morning till late afternoon.

English cookery books

Then, we will go to my brother's house - and wife - to have dinner, the "consoada". There will be also my sister, her husband and boy and my mother and father. Also my brother's wife father, sister and nephews.

On the Christmas Day, after opening our presents and having breakfast, we will go to Mass and then home again for Christmas lunch. It will be in progress since before the presents and will be ready after Mass, when my mother and father and my brother and wife come to have lunch with us. Usually her sister, father and nephews come too but not this Christmas because they have other place and friends to go.
My sister, husband and boy won't come because they go to her husband's parent's house.


So, untill Boxing Day or maybe the day after, I will not blog again but I promise that after that I will post lots of pictures of my baking, the house, the table and everything Christmas related.

See you then and have a good Christmas.
God help us all, defend us and give His blessings over us.
