At last, the night before we celebrate the birth of our Saviour! The excitement level at our home seemed to grow exponentially as the day went on. We baked a cake for Jesus' birthday, that we will serve with Christmas dinner tomorrow. We attended our church's Candlelight Christmas Eve Service, even though all I really wanted to do was curl up in bed with a hot cup of cider ... it seems this pneumonia is still hanging on. Ava Mae was so sweet during the church service - she just could not wait to have a lit candle.
The kids had fun today tracking St. Nick's progress using Norad's website and even making a phone call to them to check the status of his arrival here in Georgia. The kids finally fell asleep around 10:00PM and St. Nick made a stop at our home shortly after 11PM.
Tomorrow we will do our favorite thing ... eat a big breakfast, enjoy reading the Christmas Story as a family, then open some gifts. Our good friends, the Rhyne's, will be joining us for Christmas Dinner tomorrow evening. On the menu, a Boneless Standing Rib Roast, Sweet Potato Souffle, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli, Shrimp Cocktail and Yorkshire Pudding. Most of our dinner is compliments of Dinner A'Fare.
Our family wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas!
"Go Tell It on the Mountain ... Jesus Christ is Born!!"
