Last night we did our traditional Christmas kick-off. All the decorations are up, the lights are lit, the cookies are made… Then we start out the season with what it is really all about: Jesus!
There is just something about reading the Christmas story by candle/Christmas tree light that helps you really put Jesus back into focus.
As you can see, we’ve done this for a long time!
First we get the tree… (every year my parents’ neighbor gave us a tree)
Reading the Christmas story
After the story is read, I break into the stash of Christmas goodies all ready to go in the freezer, make some cocoa and enjoy what is sure to be another magical Christmas season!
Yay! It’s time for cookies and cocoa!!!
