This year we spent Christmas Eve with the Wuthrich's. We ate lots of good soup, snacks, and treats. Then enjoyed singing hymns while going through the nativity story. One tradition that i've been introduced to becoming part of the family that I especially love, is having a birthday cake for Jesus. We light the candles and reverently sing Happy Birthday. I love the focus it puts on Christ, and remembering his birth.
This little boy was way past his bedtime and very wild!!
You can see the tiredness, but sitting there didn't last long, of course!
After christmas jammies (which I didn't get a pictures of....darn it) we headed home to get ready for Santa Claus to come and sleep!
I love how Christmas Eve is focused on the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ.
I am so grateful for his birth and life.
It is truly because of HIM that we can be an eternal family, have eternal happiness and so much more.
MERRY CHRISTMAS 2015 from our family to yours!
