Back to Normal?

How have you spent your vacations? I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
I came back two days ago from a beautiful week spent in Washington State with my family. We go visit my Mother-in-law every year for Christmas, I think it's our new tradition and we love it! I'm glad my kids have an opportunity to spend some time with their grandma.
Now I wish I could say we are back to our "normal" life.. but we are not!! We are supposed to move in a new apartment.. hopefully that will happen soon! I closed my Etsy Shop for a few days, almost everything is the house is packed, we are living as if we were camping! :) It's fun but I long for the moment in which I will be finally in the new house and everything will be magically in order and organized! Will that ever happen?? We'll see.. ;) I know there's a lot of work ahead of me!
One of the most important things for me to do is to organize {somehow in this great mess} the Feast of the Three Kings that is celebrated tomorrow. This might shock you but my children don't wait for Santa Claus every year but for Melchior, Balthazar and Gaspar, the 3 Magi who came from far away to bring presents to Jesus and adore Him. It's the Feast of the Epiphany, celebrated in the Catholic Church, that closes the time of Christmas.
Tomorrow my children will receive their presents!! We will hopefully go to a celebration in one of the parishes that has organized the visitation of the Kings (they really come and greet the children!). It's a beautiful way to pass Faith to our kids and really the most beautiful time of the year. We are waiting for them with excitement!
Happy Feast of the Epiphany to all those who celebrate it!!!
Hugs to all!!
