Presépio is Portuguese for "Nativity Scene". Follow along as we build this year's version of a long family tradition. Mai e Pai (Mom & Dad, in Portuguese) started this tradition with just a few figurines bought in a Paris airport, to hundreds of pieces lovingly collected or hand-crafted over the decades and across two continents.

Another Epiphany...

I'm just a little bit late reporting on the Epiphany Gathering...  ;)
So many dear friends and family filled the house with laughs and warmth.  The usual fabulous array of gourmet treats topped even last year's.

At the risk of sounding corny, it truly warmed my heart when 10 year old Milo asked me for the "I Spy" game sheet...  He remembered the "Village Tour Guide" that I had made up a few years ago describing how it's made, and challenges you to find lots of different little vignettes and activities.  There he was, scanning the sheet, checking off each item!
Thank you Milo - I hope these are memories you always keep!
All the kids were great, and took their jobs of keeping the grown-ups from knocking things over very seriously.
The weather was mild enough that they could let off some steam outside, as well as having fun indoors.

I just wish that we had taken more pictures!  If any of you took some, please send them in.
Here are a few by Tim - the only ones we have!

Thanks to everyone who came - we love seeing you all.  And to those of you in far-flung places, at least you're able to virtually visit... ;)  And you can start planning now for next year's trip...
