Celebrating Christmas

Monday, December 26, 2011

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Ours began on Christmas Eve, when we celebrated at my in-laws
and carried over to our own home, when the kiddos unwrapped their Christmas jammies.
We also had to sneak in one last Christmas story before the big day.
I don't think any of us slept well that night.  We were all excited for what the day of our Savior's birth had in store.  It began with a Christmas story that Ezekiel wanted to share.
Then, BJ read the Christmas story in Luke; and Adina had to share her own version, too.
Finally, we took time to thank the Lord for sending His Son, as a baby, to save our lost and dying world...
before the kiddos opened their gifts.
BJ and I opted not to do anything for one another this year.  We got a new bathroom, and that's all the gift we needed.  It has truly been just that.  We spent the afternoon watching movies, helping Ezekiel practice with his new bow and arrow...
and eating way too much.  A delicious turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, Paula Deen's Pecan-Molasses Rolls...
cinnamon Jell-O...
and Ooey Gooey Butter Layer Cake, another Paula Deen specialty, ended a perfect day.
Well, I guess we could've done without the fits.  LOL!  Unfortunately, those come, even on Christmas day, to a tired, little, three-year-old girl.
I'll be back, tomorrow, to share a couple of homemade, Christmas treats and their packaging.  Until then, may you all have a truly wonderful start to a magnificent week!
