St Lucia Day!!!

Today is Santa Lucia and since my chubbers cried all night (not normal AT ALL for her), I slept in, and didn’t make my bread in the morning…But today, after Gorgeous Boy comes back from school, we’ll make Saffron Bread together, and if turns out well, I’ll even post the recipe! Today is Gorgeous Boy’s Ginger Bread Kid Caper Play at school. He’s so excited! He’s practiced so much! Swan Girl had her first field trip today; they went to sing at a home for elderly people. I told her to sing her out for those grandpas and grandmas.
Panda Boy is such a sweetie. He gives the yummiest kisses.
I know this isn’t the greatest post in the world, but I just wanted the world to know I’m here, and that the kids and I are having such a wonderful Advent Season. I know, I’m not a Catholic anymore; I haven’t been for 15 years, half of my life, but I love the rituals of the faith of my childhood…Advent candles, Guadalupe’s Day on the 12th, repetition and mystery…To compensate we’ll also celebrate Joseph Smith’s Birthday on the 23rd, but I won’t call it St Joseph’s Day, and I’ll combine it with Ricky Martin’s birthday on the same day. He’ll be St Beautiful Boricua. My own Boricua is Gorgeous Divine Boricua. He’s out selling alarms. We miss him. And for those of you who only know the Ricky from Living la Vida Loca, remember I grew up with the guy’s songs, and he’s such an amazing person. Visit his foundation and you’ll see…
