There's been no shortage of handmade decorations and presents. Our house has been covered in a fine layer of paper scraps, yarn bits, and glitter.
We've been enjoying advent stories and Christmas movies by the light of the tree. This year we used this Jesus Storybook Bible advent plan. I'm a pretty big fan of the Storybook Bible.
And, in the midst of the busyness, we've been trying to keep in mind why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.
The candle light service---one of my very favorite Christmas traditions.
And yesterday we hosted our second (perhaps annual?) Christmas brunch.
Lots of delicious food, hot coffee, good conversation, and beautiful worship.
It's been fun, but I have to say I'm more than ready to just sit and soak it in. Which is precisely what I plan on doing for the next couple days....just sitting riiiiiight here.
Merry Christmas : )
