Merry Christmas from our family to yours! We sincerely hope you enjoy every moment of this holiday and that your surrounded by the ones you love the most!
This year we are celebrating on Christmas Eve (today) because I work tomorrow. We woke up, opened presents with baby Marshall, had breakfast with my family, and in just a short time some of our friends will be coming over for lunch and Christmas Eve church.
This year, Marshall is really starting to enjoy the Christmas holiday. It’s his second Christmas, but last year he was too young to really know what the day was all about. This season, he has been enamored by the Christmas tree and constantly runs over to it, stares at it, and goes “WOW!” He opened presents this morning and actually enjoyed tearing the paper. We got him a motorized train set that actually jumps in the air and lands further down on the track….he is throughly enjoying it! His GiGi and Pops got him a kids-sized work bench with little kid tools and he LOVES it. Nana and Gramps spoiled him with a water and sand table and some stuffed animals! Needless to say, he’s having a great Christmas!!
We are so looking forward to having our friends and family over for lunch. We’re making prime rib roast, sides, and dessert! Its going to be delicious. And whats best is we are going to be surround by the ones we love the most which is what matters most!
Our afternoon will be spent at church…celebrating the reason for the season. Christmas Eve service is my favorite church service of the year. And I am so looking forward to filling my soul with what matters most this season.
We enjoyed a visit with my cousins at the beginning of the month and we celebrated last weekend with my dads side of the family with good food, fun, and gingerbread house making. We sincerley miss our other family members that we can’t be with today and wish we could be with everyone, but we hope they know we love them and send our Christmas wishes.
Merry Christmas from us to you! Enjoy the day, make memories, and savor every second. Thanks for reading and spending time at Grace in the Middle.
