We had a wonderful (noisy, busy, fun) Christmas Day out at the farm with our family.
The day started out with this gorgeous sunrise, and the day turned out to be nearly 50 degrees!
Although it didn’t feel Christmasy outside, the warmth and love inside sure make it feel like Christmas. Here are a few of the highlights from our full, fun day…
The Christmas brunch that included some special recipes from my grandmas who are no longer here (but surely having the best Christmases of all, spending the time with Jesus in his heavenly home).
The ten grandchildren ages nine and under (this fact makes the gift-opening time a little perilous but SO fun and exciting)
The fondue supper (A tradition my parents started about forty years ago when they got a fondue set for a wedding present). This year we all gathered around the same table, dipped our ham and bread into my mom’s wonderful cheese sauce and some fruit and pound cake into the chocolate sauce. We sipped our sparkling cider, which we have every year with our fondue supper. .
Celebrating our savior’s birth with reading Luke chapter 2 and the kids acting it out with a Nativity Set
Our Christmas celebrations aren’t fancy or reserved, but they are precious and genuine and full of gratitude for the birth of our Savior so many years ago.
We sincerely hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that your 2015 is filled with many blessings.
Luke 2, For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you; you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.”
