Christmas was always a magical time for the 11 Wilson children, and a highlight was the annual delivery of the gingerbread house from Dream Muffin, Santa’s little-known baker. The confectionary delight covered our entire mantle, with gingerbread likenesses of our house, horses, dog, and one year, even second oldest brother Larry in his navy uniform when he couldn’t be with us in person. Here is a snapshot of brothers Ray and John (children #6 & 7) about to sample the goodies! May the magical spirit of the season fill your hearts and homes, and may 2021 bring our parish family together again! —Theresa Andrews

When our daughter, Audrey, was two, she processed at the Christmas Eve children’s liturgy as a humble sheep so serious and solemn that it brought tears to more than just parental eyes, while our son, Ned, refused to participate unless he could be the star—the one over the stable, that is. Rather than lecture him on the virtue of humility, we helped him fashion a headdress from cardboard and foil, and off they went, hand in hand. By Christmas 2000, when this image was taken, Audrey’s “Bethlehem character” outranked Ned’s! “May mercy, peace & love be yours in ever greater measure.” (Jude 1:2) –John & Laura Fratus
