I hope y’all all had a blessed, peaceful, and very merry Christmas, whether you celebrated the holiday or just enjoyed a day of rest. Be sure to leave me a note about your day – I’d love to hear how you celebrated! 😀

We spent Christmas Eve at my sister’s house, visiting with her and her family, as well as my grandparents. One of my favorite things about my family is when we’re all sitting around, just visiting, and we begin to sing. This particular evening brought many Christmas carols, and Michael accompanied us on the piano, but we also sang timeless hymns. And Ariel (my five-year-old niece) blessed us with a sweet singing of Happy Birthday, Jesus, while Michael played it on the piano.

Christmas Day was quiet and lovely…we’re finally growing accustomed to not having all the family here Christmas morning. Even with just four of us, opening gifts can take quite some time since we take turns so that each person can sufficiently admire and appreciate each thoughtful gift, and the giver can enjoy seeing the recipient’s delight when opening their package. 😀

The story of Jesus’ birth, Christmas gifts purchased (or crafted) and wrapped with love and joy, smiles and lots of laughter, and then our traditional brunch…Mommy’s delicious egg casserole.

The rest of our day was spent playing. Hours together with our new game…the popular Apples to Apples…cleaning ‘stacking’ bubbles off the carpet and hunting marshmallows from behind doors after we launched them out of the wonderfully hand-crafted marshmallow gun. 😀 Books, music, and gadgets to enjoy. A beautiful family to be thankful for. And, even more importantly, a wonderful Savior to stand in awe of. How great is His love for us!
