This week we are suppose to be sharing special things we are doing to celebrate Christmas this year.  This year for us the month of December will include celebrating a very special wedding, hosting out of town guests, showers and then hosting my parents for Christmas.  We are so excited!!

Our special Christmas tradition usually falls on Christmas eve.  This year we will attend church and then come home to meet my parents (who will hopefully get in on time).  During our Christmas eve meal we usually read through different passages of the Christmas story that will correspond to different course of the meal.  Like during appetizers we will read about John the Baptist who was the forerunner to Christ.  This year we are eating fish tacos and salad.  After dinner the girls re-enact the Christmas story and then we open pj’s and head to bed.  We try and keep the night fun and yet reflective.  We will sing songs and try to keep things moving with toddlers at the table :)

What things are you doing??
