Since both Mike and I's parents are divorced we have a lot of get togethers around the holidays.
Christmas Eve we went to his mom's house to celebrate
We had a great time with family and Ellie got plenty of new toys and outfits!
Christmas morning we woke up, I made some coffee cake, we read the Christmas story and opened presents as a family. Our plan is to only give 3 gifts per person plus stocking stuffers.
We figure if that was good enough for Jesus then it should be good enough for us. And I think it will help us focus about what Christmas is really about instead of the comericialization.
In the afternoon we headed over to Mike's dad's house for the H family Christmas
This weekend we will be celebrating Christmas with my side of the family.
Saturday we have the H family Christmas, which can be up to 40+ people.
And Sunday after church we have our siblings Christmas.
November thru January is a busy busy time of year for us!!
So far we've had a great holiday season and are so thankful for our friends and family.
We are most thankful for the gift of Salvation. God is so good to us and I am so blessed to be a daughter of the King.
"But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord."
I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and enjoyed wonderful time with your friends and family!!
