I did not think about how busy and fast this season would be! But it has been filled with joy and many precious memories.
I want to complete my 25 days of Christmas, but I need to keep this post short since my spare time is even shorter. Over the past few days our little family has enjoyed the sound of Christmas music, Christmas stories about our Savior's birth, lots of baking, present wrapping, and we visited the Grove Park Inn for a tour of ginger bread houses. Skylar and Maddox even got to take a special plane ride with their Papa as their own personal pilot down to Georgia to spend time with their grandparents. Their Papa even let them do some flying as well! While there they were surprised to see Jingle Twingle, their elf, make an appearance. They spent time on a farm petting a baby cow, picking cotton, and collecting pecans. They received a ton of spoiling from their grandparents with precious memories that will last a life time. While gone I did some much needed cleaning, more present wrapping, had fun at Christmas party with friends, and enjoyed some alone time with Mitch.
I am glad to have my babies back. Today we have spent all day baking and making a few homemade gifts to give away. This evening we will go to a Christmas eve church service, then spend time with distant and near relatives. Tonight before bed we will sit by our fire place and listen to Mitch read from the Bible, Luke chapter two, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow morning we will wake up early, and open presents. For breakfast we will sing to Jesus happy birthday and enjoy a an angel food birthday cake. Over breakfast we will discuss how this is Jesus' day and not ours. Then we're off to spend the day with family.
I hope you will enjoy our photos from this past week, for we have enjoyed the memories.
Merry Christmas Eve!
