For Christmas Eve we went to a service at 3 in the afternoon. This service (1 of 5) was geared toward the kids, with young readers reading passages of scripture, and directed readings. There was also a kids choir for those that wanted to participate, Ella and Sophia happily agreed. We were so proud to watch them singing of our Saviors birth.Thankfully I had a couple of pads of paper and pens in my purse to keep Sophia and Owen happy while the service continued, usually there is coloring books/crayons for Sunday mornings available. After service we made our way home and finished up the grocery shopping to be prepared for a day at home. The girls and I made a Birthday Cake together before they went to bed – fun memories. Before I turned in – I prepared breakfast, made coffee, helped Joe get the presents down – and made it to bed by 10! That never happens :)
Emmalie and her scooter – she’s been riding it around the kitchen!
Sophia and her Groovy Girl – each of the girls got a different one.
Ella and her addition to her Littlest Pet Shop collection.
Owen eating the cookie that Santa left.
We ended the day with a program the girls have been practicing for the past week. They each sang a song individually, and finished with Jingle Bells together. We are so thankful to have had a great day together celebrating Jesus’ birth.
At the moment I am itching to sew! It’s been a solid week since I touched my machine . . . but since I had a “day off” yesterday (dishes only) the house is a bit disheveled – time to dig out :) The driveway needs digging out too – but I think I will leave that to Joe today!
Have a great weekend ~
