Christmas traditions

We have a tradition that kinda took place on its own: I make a dinner for Christmas eve, after we eat and have some fun we go to our church's candle light service, where we sing Christmas carols and join the sea of candle lights - thousands of people (it is absolutely beautiful!), then in the morning we put our pajamas on, grab all of our presents and go to my mom's and dad's where they are waiting (in pjs too) to open presents and have Christmas brunch. It is so much fun and we love out traditions!
My own little tradition is I listen to the christian carols all day long while cooking and getting ready for the dinner.
So today was full of cooking (I used some of my favorite cook books, some of the dishes included chicken pot pie, beef roast, various salads, corn biscuits, baked apples and ice cream for desert), cuddling with my husband, fun with my family, wrapping the presents (a little late this year), and to top it all off - beautiful carol singing and thousands of candle lights all to glorify the birth of our Hope, our Light, our only Chance, our Teacher, our Baby Boy!
And now I a off to sleep, tomorrow morning is one of my favorite days this whole year!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
