We are so blessed to have all our family close by so Christmas is celebrated at our home where there is room to invite our family of 13. Donn's parents moved out here this Summer so we were blessed to have them join us, too. Since our youngest grandchild is 9 and the oldest is 17 we usually have a calm time with all the festivities. Below are some of the highlights of the day. The one major change we made this year was to have everyone come over @ 2PM instead of the morning time which suited this night person quite well :) It's always a blessing to have a reason to have family come to our home but Christmas time is always the most special because of the birthday of a king... THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS... JESUS CHRIST THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD!!! Luke 2:11
It's almost time!
Christmas snacks are a must!
