This year is our youngest child's second Christmas, so he is really going to enjoy present time. While presents are always fun and exciting, remembering why we celebrate Christmas is also special and important to us. I love teaching our children about the Nativity story and teaching them about Jesus' birth. How special this Christmas day really is to us.
Christmas Eve church service is also special to us this year, because this is our first Christmas Eve service at the church my husband founded and pastor's. Our church family is so special and close to our hearts so I'm excited to have an intimate, quiet service where we will sing to our God and praise Him for sending us His son.
Oh! And this is the first Christmas in 3 years since my little brother has been home. He's a marine and hasn't been able to make it back, but this year has. Needless to say I think my parents are overjoyed and it'll be nice to have my whole family together under one roof celebrating together!
This month has gone by way too fast, I want to savor every moment and enjoy it all while I can. I just love this time of year, don't you? What are some favorite things you and your family do around this time of year? Or what are some special memories you have about Christmas, or what are you looking forward to this Christmas?
