home for the holidays

I'm staying close to home for Christmas, as is the rest of my CSJP house. It will be nice to have a community Christmas, my first with this local community. Christmas Eve morning we've got a fun project to do together (I made scones this evening to tide us over during our secret project). Christmas Eve night we're headed next door to our local parish, where one of the Sisters I live with is singing in the choir at mass. Christmas Day we'll be spending at west coast groovy sister hq for mass and dinner. Then after Christmas I've got a 3 Day weekend (I'm taking Monday off). Hopefully a movie or two, some down time, and getting a special project of my own finished and off my plate.

In the midst of it all, the celebration of the Incarnation of Christ our Lord. God with us. Emmanuel. Whenever I really stop to think about what that means, I'm in awe. No wonder we're still celebrating 2,000+ years later.
