my true love gave to me:
Twelve Drummers Drumming
The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles’ Creed: 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church, 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.
Technically, we went ahead and celebrated the 12th day on the 11th day, because..well…we could. That would be why everyone has the same clothes on. 😉 We had decided that on the 12th day we would give our gifts to the kids. Normally, we do a want, a need, and a book and sometimes something I have made for them. Since the books and the “made for” had already been covered, we stuck to the need and want. Here are a few photos:
