This Christmas was so wonderful. It only happens once every seven years or so that Christmas lands on Sunday and it was so great to be at Church on Christmas Day. We always go to Christmas Eve Service which I Love but there was something special about being at Church on Christmas. The Service was beautiful and I just Love being around our precious church family that we adore so much. Jason was saying how this year felt so much more relaxed and not rushed or stressful and I couldn't have agreed more. We are so thankful for the precious gift of Jesus. Christmas eve was spent hanging out as a family. One of our traditions we have on Christmas Eve is to read the Christmas Story and then open three gifts. The three gifts represent the three wise man and they are a practical, fun, and spiritual gift. They always get matching jammies as there practical gift, this year they got an odyssey drama for the spiritual gift, and the game quirrkel for the fun gift. After an evening at church and visits with family we tucked them in and got all the gift arranged under the tree. Noah really wanted to set up a video camera to see who really puts the presents under the tree. He is convinced that it is us. So Jason being the silly dad he is dressed up as Yoda and I video taped him putting the gifts under the tree. The boys thought it was hillarious as did I. It was a fun day full of fun surprises for all of us.
