Happy Santa Lucia Day!

Katie, Jenna, Ella, Hannah, Ashelyn, & Annie
Once again it is Santa Lucia Day and Grandma Fish had a wonderful event planned! We all went over to her house in the evening and Grandpa had a pathway we walked thru the woods. It was lit with candles and we came upon a Christmas tree, a tomte, and then in the distance we heard Silent night being played on a trumpet. As we got closer to the sound we found Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus. Then from the woods we heard Oh Holy Night being sung. After the song was over we all sang some carols to the baby and then hiked back thru the woods to the house where we had cocoa and Swedish bread. It was a lovely night and I hope a lasting tradition. Gid couldn't resist wearing the helmet and really looks like a swede! Our Lucias were so beautiful. As the evening was winding down we watched last years Christmas devotional where they sang the friendly beasts and again we had fun remembering when the kids were little and sang that to their Grandma.
We also remembered Josh and sang to him! Happy Birthday son and I hope you got rolls where ever you were!

Now that sounds like a celebration. Josh got rolls and hot chocolate. One of his favorite traditions for sure.
