The Christmas that was

Christmas went so fast this year. Christmas eve was a whirlwind of church service–6 to be exact. Wow. We had a good time though, needless to say I was totally exhausted at the end of the day.

The services were great. I think over 1,000 people came to Church on the 24th. Amazing. Candles everywhere (and glow sticks for kids), Silent Night and the giant tree. A great way to celebrate.

Andy & I exchanged stockings on Christmas eve (he had never had a stocking before!!). It was cool. My stocking had a bottle of wine in it. 🙂 Then I got to sleep late on Christmas and we opened gifts. It was a really nice first married Christmas. Then we went to our friends Jen & Ellen’s house for Christmas fun. Loads of food, games, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Ahh yes. Good stuff.

Hope your Christmas was an awesome celebration of Jesus’ birth!

    It is hard to fit trips to Disney World, bikes, television sets, and stereos into stockings.

    A lot of families I grew up with didn’t do stockings either… but for some reason it was a big deal to my mom.
