The 12th Day of Christmas and the Epithany

Merry Twelfth Day of Christmas to all.  Today is officially the end of the Christmas season.  Most of you have already taken down the tree and packed up the decorations.   Not in our home!   We celebrate Christmas through until the end- the very end!  

Until we sing "and a partridge in a pear tree!'

We attend Mass and celebrate the Epiphany of our Lord- the day the 3 Wise Men came.

Now we can take down our Christmas tree!

Joining In!

Two things which I too enjoy- knitting and reading!  So I'm linking up Ginny at Small Things for my very first Yarn Along!
I finished this newborn sweater in a wonderful organic cotton.  What a wonderful knit.  The chunkier yarn worked beautifully to create a cozy little gift.
It was nice to relax and knit while I finished these two very intense reads. Mommy' I'm Still in Here is a mother's journey with her daughter's Bi-Polor Disorder.   She writes like your sitting down with her over a cup of coffee.   It was so insightful.  Then, on to Brain on Fire.  Intriguing to think about the doctors being so quick to make a diagnosis to find it something else entirely.  
I think I'll start the Tomi dePaola series now!
