Today was a very relaxed prep day. I briamed the Turkey, made a few desserts, and did a quick clean up around the house. We then went to enjoy some snow and sled runs at a neighborhood church. The evening was filled with attending a Christmas musical and candlelight service at my sisters church. Carla actually had one of the key rolls in this years productions. She did fantastic! After the servise we went back to my house for a bunch of yummy snacks, card games and a movie.
One of Zachary and Alexis’s favorite tradition and memory of Christmastime is sleeping next to our Christmas tree. I was raised with this tradition also. Somehow just laying next to the tree trying to fall asleep with soft Christmas music playing and the twinkle of the Christmas lights on my face still seems so special. it was fun having our little dog Crystal take part is this years tradition.
Last Christmas we tried to incorporate a visit from Santa. It did not go so well but is very funny. See video below.
