Last week it was the shepherds and sheep. This week saw the arrival of wise men, cattle-a-lowing, sheep-a-baaing and angels, lots of them. They sing “Hallelujah” to the Leonard Cohen / X-factor tune in our house because Toby and Isabella love that song.
Here are the latest pics of the Nativity. The star path is nearly gone and the sky is full of stars, which means its nearly Christmas day!
Tonight, we launched into Christmas with our neighbours and friends party. Each year there are new additons – new neighbours, new friends (and neighbours who have become friends) but also new little ones. At one point we counted 18 children (not including babes in arms) and around 40 adults in our home – all at the same time! Oh my. It was fun – tiring, fun and oh so worth it for all the wonderful connections and community that is created and strengthened by being together with food and wine. Its truly the stuff that makes life good.
