The family gathered for Christmas Eve. We had great food (prime rib and all the fixings), enjoyed each others company and had fun watching the kids run around while playing games like Ele Fun. We called it an early night because we all knew we’d be up early.
Christmas morning was enjoyable. We woke up and the kids found all the goodies in their stockings. The kids played and once the gifts were loaded into the car we made our way over to my brother and sister in laws for breakfast and more family time. We had another yummy feast followed with presents and a fun white elephant game. The elephant game was our first and I think will be a new tradition. What did we win? Well, we won some bath stuff (no one wanted to trade) and a cool magnetic flashlight set. The cousins (8 & 10) chose the movie gifts with lots of candy. Go figure! They loved it. We filled the rest of the day with conversations, movies, more food and relaxing.
I love Christmas! I love the family God has blessed me with. I am also thankful for Jesus for dying on the cross so that his chosen will be reconciled and forgiven of our sins. You are the best gift!
