My Sunday Best, Volume 86: Christmas Eve-Style!

Happy Christmas Eve!


We're finishing up our preparations for tomorrow - usually we get the house decorated on Christmas Eve, but we managed to do most of it yesterday because Andrew's gone all day today. The organist at the church he directs at has ELEVEN Masses to play over the course of this weekend and tomorrow, so I'm definitely feeling thankful Andrew isn't quite so committed! And thankful that my mom and sister are here to help out, because dealing with everyone alone right now is... not my idea of a good time. Behavior issues have been EXCESSIVE this month, to say the least.

I headed to Mass with my sister and a few of the other kids, and Edith sat in Aunt Sister's lap until all the way through the homily! Which meant I was dealing with a very grumpy Elizabeth, but... still better than the squirmy baby. We were confused at first, because the readings were for the Christmas Vigil, but apparently in the Extraordinary Form if Christmas is on a Monday, the vigil happens the morning beforehand? I'm still a little confused... Advent was weird this year. At least I'm done Christmas shopping!

Your turn!

Post your outfit details & links or not, regale us all with your children's antics, reflect deeply on the readings, or just do a straight picture post - anything goes as long as you actually wore your outfit to church. The link-up is open until Friday, so you've got plenty of time to add your post!

Just a few ground rules before you link up:

1. Please include a photo of what you wore to church this week.

2. Please link back to this post in the body of your post, so your readers know where to find other posts (posts not mentioning "My Sunday Best" or not linking back to this post will be subject to removal).

3. Please visit some other posts in the link-up & leave a nice comment - this is all about affirming each other and building community, not just link dropping :)

4. Make sure the link you add is a link to your specific post or instagram picture (hashtag #mysundaybest and mention me in your caption, @rosiehill425 so I don't miss it!), not just your blog address.



5. Enjoy, and thanks for linking up!
