Veni veni, Emmanuel

captivum solve Israel,
qui gemit in exsilio,
privatus Dei Filio.

Gaude! Gaude!
nascetur pro te, Israel!

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
shall come to thee, O Israel!

Tonight our cousin Aaron, his wife Kara and their new baby Dana are staying here, on their way from Houston to visit family in Michigan. Dana is still tiny, and a mind-bogglingly cute pugilist:

After a day and a half of driving, she was completely obliging to my entire family, who hardly let Aaron or Kara have her all day. She even tolerated my clumsy cradling (with sister Katie standing watch to make sure I don't lose her):
