Another must--is the outside lights...my son's specialty! (Thanks Brad!)
Above, I thought these were appropriately placed...our Hope is in the LORD!
Ok, now we move on to baking days...some with friends, and some w/Mommom
Ok, I admit, there was eating involved too! LOL
And then, the family Christmas picture...And then, before we knew it...it was Christmas Eve! We p/u my mom, and spend that at my dear brother and family's home...then, my mom comes home with us and spends the night.Before we knew it, Christmas morning had come! First, my dear husband reads the Christmas Story, then we pray...and then we open the presents. :) Here's Muffy waiting for that part!After this, we have a delicious breakfast of homemade belgian waffles w/whipped cream and strawberries, and sausage and organic bacon. The rest of the day--we munch on leftovers as we are busy playing games and chatting!Yum!
Below, Muffy in the aftermath. :)
Chippy gets into it with his bells on!
In looking back over our traditions, I have to say, it's no wonder I love Christmas! We get to celebrate the birth of the Savior! Sing about it, thank God for it, and tell others about it!
And then, we spend lots of special family time together...serving one another, laughing, singing, praying and playing! It's a special time of year, and I love it!
I hope yours was just as special as ours was!
