Christmas Eve Mass

We visited the Mission San Xavier del Bac to attend mass on Christmas Eve.  We arrived a half hour early and were lucky enough to score a pew in the back!  We then remembered that we're not Catholic so decided to just walk the grounds and enjoy the beautiful art and architecture instead.  (Not sure what Sylvia is checking on.)

Is skipping disrespectful?

Next to the Mission is a hill with a path to walk around.


Christmas Picture Books

In our home we celebrate Christmas!  We love the stories and songs.  At the library we found a lot of great Christmas picture books that are new to me. A Dozen Silk Diapers

Baboushka and the Three Kings

When I was a child, living in Los Angeles, our family had a Christmas tradition of visiting Olvera Street, the oldest street in the city, to see the parade of Las Posadas.  I was very excited when I came across these two books.
