Merry Christmas!

I love Christmas Eve and look forward to tonight more than any other day of the year.

♥ I love that we get dressed up as a family.

♥ I love that we have a special meal together.

♥ I love lighting the final candles on our Advent centerpiece.

♥ I love setting out luminaries to light the sidewalk of the church for tonight's service (just tea lights in mason jars).

♥ I love our Christmas candlelight service and singing Silent Night.

♥ I love the feeling of anticipation.

♥ I love receiving phone calls throughout the day from people wishing us a Merry Christmas.

♥ I love worshiping with my church family.

♥ I love that we come home from church and curl up together to watch a Christmas movie.

♥ I love knowing that as old as my children are, they will be up early tomorrow! :-)

♥ Yesterday, I made loaves of cranberry-orange bread to give to families that attend our candlelight service tonight. I love being able to bless our church family this way and wish I could do more for them.
