Christmas Celebration at Home

Celebrating Christmas at home is the best (I just wish that my family can celebrate it here with us but that is impossible as they are thousands of miles away).  The kids were part of the St. Joseph Choir that  sung at the 4:30 mass at church so went there early so they could practice.  We took some photos before  we left..  
I think the color of the night was maroon and burgundy because I saw a lot of   similar colors to the dress I was wearing at church.  It is nice attending Christmas masses because  you get to see  different faces you've never seen before.  Some families have other family members with them who are visiting from other places so it's nice to see the church filled with people.
I bought a  set of church clothes for our son with bowtie.  I wanted to see how he would look like with it, I think he looked cute.  The most important thing was the fact that he liked it.  It is hard to shop for clothing for my little guy, he does not like to try clothes on at all.  I was surprised that the clothing I bought him online fit him perfectly.  
Hubby  never liked wearing  suit but  for Christmas, he didn't mind.  He only wear suits on funeral, job interviews, and  Christmas mass.   
Ever since  I started the one-photo-a-month project, they gotten used to taking photos with little resistance so I  think I will have to keep going on that.  It's good to look back to old photos and see how much they have grown.  
The mass was beautiful.  The voices of the children singing  are like the bonus to  receiving the good news.
I hope that you all had a great Christmas celebration.  We had a simple but very meaningful one.
Below is the video I recorded while the kids and hubby opened their presents.  This is the first time that we woke up  before the kids did.  I think it's because my daughter was not feeling well.  For some reason, both of the kids had a sore throat.  I gave them some ginger tea and they feel a little better.  Today, my daughter is down with  a flu, she feels horrible.  I am just glad they are on Christmas break and doesn't have to go to school.  They can rest and relax.
