Merry Christmas………..



While I enjoy Coymas, I love Christmas!!  My favorite day of the year is Christmas Eve.  I love attending Christmas service with my children and celebrating the real reason for the season, the birth of our Savior!! 

We have traditions of how we celebrate Christmas Eve each year, that have become very special to us.  We always attend Christmas Service together.  The plow has gone by our house and we are nearly dug out so we will be able to attend service at 4:00.   I am so looking forward to the service.  

After church we come home and start making our feast of apprtizers.  Each person selects one favorite they want and I try a couple of new appetizer recipes too!   My children love shrimp so there is always alot of that!!  So we snack on appetizers in the living room.   We have a great time!   After eating, we exchange gifts between ourselves and watch a Christmas movie.  This year we will be watching The Nativity.   It is a quiet evening with the family celebrating the birth of Christ!     There is nothing better……

  1. MErry Christmas, Jen! I haven’t been on Xanga in a VERY long time.  Sad because I used to like to look back at what I’d been doing in years past.

    I always loved reading and trying your recipes!

    I went to Hearts at Home conference again this year.  I know last year you said you had been thinking about going…

    Have a great New Year!
