all is calm, all is bright."
Our christmas eve was a quiet night with our family. A nice dinner, advent and a simple gift to open. We did the traditions of cookies for santa, as well as the reading of the story of Christ and his birth. The best treat this year was the singing. Both boys are old enough now to know some parts of traditional songs so we sang together Away in a Manger and Silent Night before we ended with a "Happy Birthday to You". What a memory I will treasure.
Christmas morning the boys did the usual gift openings with excited tearing of paper and boxes. Later that afternoon was spent at our friends home with their family for a wonderful dinner and the warmth of a fire. It was the perfect ending to a gloryfilled day.
my smiling angels- enjoying every moment of the season!
