Because Christmas landed on a Sunday this year, our celebration was a little different than most years.
We started off the day by all traveling in our separate directions. We each hopped on our buses to go pick up children for our Christmas morning service.
Our Christmas Service was absolutely wonderful. The children did a short Christmas program in which they portrayed the true meaning of Christmas. How easy it is to get caught up in the hustle and bustle the holidays bring, however Christmas is all about the Christ Child who was born to die for you and me.
After the Christmas service we headed back home again. We all helped finishing up the last minute preparations before our dinner.
A confession: This cheese ball is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. It is divine!
Some others get a little too excited about the deviled eggs!
Homemade candies, a holiday tradition.
While the ham was in the oven we enjoyed messing around getting a few pictures in front of the Christmas tree.
Anticipation is building...
This Christmas was absolutely wonderful in every way!
Merry Christmas to you!
