I present to you a proud and happy family! told you my girl was 3 years old on the ninth, didn't I? well, I don't know if it is usual in the rest of the world, but here in Mexico, we present our children when they are three years old to the Virgin Mary in a ceremony called "Consagracion" , consecration. We ask her to look after them and in the ceremony the priest reads the gospel where Jesus tells his disciples to allow the children to come to him... and then the child says a prayer. It is customary to dress the child either in their best gala or in semblance to a Saint or the Virgin or even as nuns or priests. Judith chose to be dressed as the Virgin. (yes, she did. That girl has very distinct clothing ideas)
That's us! Daddy, Judith, Esther and yours truly, for once in a dress and high heels!
That's her godmother holding her!
During the reading of the gospel.
She was so shy this day! and so proper! she did not run or toss her flowers or ... well, do all the things she usually does! she's such a good little girl! Looking at the photos, I can't believe this big girl is my baby... I must have done something really good earlier in life to deserve her and her sister!
Afterwards we had dinner, but I'll tell you all about it in the next post..
... these lovely goodies! two skeins of sock yarn in girlie colors (yaay!) and three ornaments: a bell, a large snowflake and a small snowflake that will be in the hands of my tree topper, an angel.
Oh, I know you want to know what I'm working on right now.... (yeah right! you are sitting on the edge of your seats!). Fear no more, here it is! I'm working in a baby blanket for a very much expected baby, for whom I ask of you to pray for!
I received a package a few days ago that I had to -very bravely!- refrain for a while from showing to you... Thank you so much Ruth, I loved it all! I had to keep it hush hush because I'm a terrible liar.
Yeah, what does it have to do with anything that I'm a terrible liar... well, I had to tell my swap partner something cause she was starting to suspect I was her secret partner, and I had to say YOU were! so, if I showed your package she would have caught me! sorry! sorry! sorry!
Look how pretilly it is wrapped! It was such a joy to open! and inside...
