And then sadly we finally arrive at the 12th day of Christmas. The last day of our Nativity festival and feasting. On this day we have our traditional 12 Days of Christmas Feast.

Today Gerhardt brought out the gifts he had for each of his brothers and sisters. He had been home from school one day before the break and ran around the house gathering items he knew each of them would love. Then he wrapped them all himself with boxes he thought they would like as well. What a sweet boy. I had fun watching how much joy this brought him.

On this day we also have our traditional 12 Days of Christmas Feast. Something on the table to represent each day of Christmas as sung about in the carol The 12 Days of Christmas.

I’m not sure why but cream puffs just seemed like an appropriately “French” dessert to serve…

And that’s it. Our Christmas 2018-2019.

    Well I thoroughly enjoyed journeying through your 12 days of Christmas! It always brings such a smile to my face to see all the festivities and all the ways you have created to make the season so special! And it makes me laugh to almost “hear” Philip giggling with delight as he prepared that certain gift for the children! Thank you for sharing it all! Hugs! 🙂

    Every day was a delight to see for your family! So many wonderful memories that you and Phil are making with your children. It makes me want to see what they’ll do with their own families someday.

    Get some rest, honey. You’ve “dun it big” for Christmas.
