Well, things are winding down this Christmas Eve . . . we enjoyed a Christmas Eve Service at a church down the road from our new place - maybe we will have a new home church soon! It was wonderful to be able to enjoy the candlelight service with the reminder of what Christmas is really about - Christ! The grace and mercy that has been extended to me brings me to tears at times.
We came home and got the little man settled in for the night, and then it was time to get to work! We have a large assortment of Christmas presents for the little man, some from us and many, many from our wonderful families. Since our little man is only 19 months old, we decided to place the majority of the presents out unwrapped, pulling them out of plastic, undoing twisty ties, etc. Should make for a fun morning tomorrow!
I have started a tradition of buying a special ornament each year for the little man - something that reminds me of him for the past year. This year the ornament is this Curious George - because he is beginning to be a bit like a monkey with all his climbing and he LOVES to read!
I hope everyone has a merry little Christmas - enjoying the yearly reminder that Christ humbled himself, shedding everything to be born an infant on earth, one who would later save the world.
