Child friendly Christmas Eve Celebration...

It is just the six of us tonight. We range in age from 42 to 3 so we had to make stuff everyone could have. I got a little inspiration from my friend Cheri and a few things from around the house. We got out a tablecloth that I made about 10 years ago and a table runner a friend gave us. I dragged out the gold charger plates, a few snacks and some fancier Christmas dishes that don't get much use and we celebrate...

What are we celebrating? Jesus Birthday... of course! :) We are watching the Nativity Story and eating our treats and drinking cocoa and just being together to celebrate our Lord! We celebrate Advent in our home... that is what the candles are for.

May you have a blessed Christmas with your family and friends and may you use the good dishes and eat the fun food and just be families but most of all, remember why we do this... a man named Jesus came to live among the human race and to live His life sinlessly and then to die for the human race. Do you know Him? I pray on Christmas that you think about that great love... and know that there is more. There is more than Santa and more than presents and more than food and more than playing and football games and parades...

there is Eternal Life in a little baby that came for us... for you.

His name is Jesus!

Have the Merriest of Days this Christmas Season!!!

Much Love,
