We went to the vigil Mass at 4pm. The church only got about half full and it was beautiful, even if some of the kids were a bit hungry/tired/fussy.
I had wrapped all the presents over the past month, so all we had to do was get the kids and bed, put the presents out and put bows on.
It is a shame the tree is lacking most ornaments, but the lights were still pretty and the evergreen smell divine and none of the kids even noticed the tree with all that shiny paper below it! LOL
