Main Entrance

I got my Christmas wish this year…. attend midnight mass(10pm) at the Washington, D.C. National Cathedral.

What a beautiful experience that was…. I’m ashamed to say, it’s been a long time since I’ve been to church and this Christmas Eve Mass was wonderful to experience. I sang, I prayed, and I enjoyed the beautiful Sermun.

Afterwards… getting through the parking garage mess, we made it home after midnight. And I have to tell you, that was enough.

Before we left for the mass… around 8:30pm we munched on some Garden Green Salad, Whole Wheat Bread and Hummas for dinner. And that was filling enough to put me right ot bed.

Today, is Christmas… I’d like to catch the new movie, “It’s Complicated”. Should be fun…..

It’s tradition in my family to open one present on Christmas Eve… then go to Midnight Mass. This year I went to the Tyson’s Mall in Virginia with Mike so that he could by my gift… and I just opened it.!!!! Donna Karen’s Cashmere Mist Perfume.

So now, we’re getting ready to head out for Midnight Mass (10pm) at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. tonight. You have to have a ticket to get into the mass and I didn’t schedule ahead of time, so hopefully we’ll be able to get tickets tonight.?!?!
