Feliz Dia de Los Reyes Magos!

Feliz Dia de Los Reyes Magos! Happy Epiphany, Mamas!  To celebrate this Twelfth Night, we had a family dinner of cornbread and beans and bean tamales and tomatoes and then the girls opened the small gifts that the Magi had put under our Christmas tree for them in the Night.  We rolled beeswax candles to be our advent wreath next year.  We ate a King cake that I made - Lone Star Pa got the baby - and moved our Magi figurines the final steps in their journey to the baby Jesus in our little nativity scene.

The Magi are said to have brought gifts to the Christ Child.  What gifts did the past year bring to you? What gifts are you giving to the world?

Sounds lovely. Tamales!! So jealous. I'll have to think a bit on that last question. Not feeling in a generous mood today. :)
