We had a wonderful Christmas. It was filled with lots of joy, giggles, excitement and happiness. Each year it gets better and better as the girls get older and older. Laylie is getting to the age where she is counting down for Christmas Day for a month, our home is filled with her cute voice singing Christmas carols, and her extra zest for Jesus' birth. Jason and I just soaked up our two girls and saw what it's like all over again being a kid on Christmas.
Christmas Eve is always such a treat. Loads of traditions with my family which include - lots of family, church, a tasty lasagna dinner, singing, and gifts. This year we switched it up a bit and Laylie blessed us all by teaching us about the story of Jesus' birth, I read the Bible to everyone, and Jason played his guitar while we all sang Christmas songs. I must say, it might have been my favorite Christmas Eve.
The next morning, the girls woke up at 5am jumping up and down yelling "it's Christmas!!" We gave each other morning kisses and hugs and took our annual picture on the stairs. We opened gifts, ate a tasty breakfast together and sang "happy birthday" to baby Jesus.
That afternoon, we visited the Whites for some more Christmas celebration and fun. We had a wonderful time being together, watching the cousins play with one another, and hanging out until dark.
What a wonderful Christmas it was, and we will always be so grateful for the best gift of all....God sending his son on a peaceful night all those years ago so that he could save us all. The White Family wishes you a Happy New Year for 2014 - may it be filled with many blessings and love.
