It's Epiphany and My Tree Is Crying for Mercy!

So, tonight is the night.

I'm feeling like it took a long time to get here but I think that's because the kids went back to school and my house says it's still Christmas. When we homeschooled, we did not start school back up until after the sixth.

I'm sad because I still can't find my camera. That is why there are no Christmas pictures (besides, I was sick as a dog on Christmas anyway). Please pray we find it cause the Christmas money is spent!

Also, my Netflix of "The Fourth Wise Man" I told you about is late. Still, it's not too bad since we can't stay up late on a school night so we will be watching it this weekend.

Rick is off tomorrow so that makes this evening so nice. Plus, he gets to be my tote man tomorrow while we put Christmas away.

So, I came here to remind you it's a special night. Don't forget to read the account of the wise men. Daja said her family have always ordered Chinese food, that's a cute idea too. She said it was because the wise men came from the east:). Anytime you can add food to memories they make them that more special. We are having vegi lasagna, salad and ice cream because I didn't plan ahead enough for Chinese. Maybe we can do that the night we watch the movie. I need to come up with something, maybe Rick can do some research for me. Italian may be my favorite type of food but it's not exactly related to the wise men.

Our kids open one gift after the story to celebrate the bringing of the gifts. That ends the Christmas season, and I think if my tree could talk it would say "have mercy!".

I am going to go request the movie right now. I get distracted and forget to request it.

I've never read "The Fourth Wise Man" I'm starting to hear more about it and want to read it/see it.
I had to put my tree away this weekend. I admire you for waiting thru Epiphany.
My kids went back to school today. It was a cold, rainy day so I mostly stayed around the house. Oh, I did go work out.:)
Sorry you were sick at Christmas. We did that 2 Christmas' ago. It's miserable.
Hope you find your camera soon.

I love the idea of Chinese food to go along with the story.
