It's Christmas week!!! I think my most favorite day of the year is Christmas Eve... well... my most favorite time of the year is Christmas Eve evening. I love going to Church... I can feel the sacredness of these few hours... I love the lights and the music and being with my family!!!
Then comes the joy and fun and food of Christmas Day!!!
We are neck-deep in Christmas traditions at StoneGable! From no children (not even adult children) allowed downstairs until Bobby goes down and turns on the tree lights etc and makes sure Santa has come... to the tradition of the food we eat!
My son called me two days ago to make sure we were having the same menu for Christmas brunch!!! "We ARE having Christmas casserole, aren't we, Mom?"
Traditions bind families together and makes memories. I hope your Christmas is filled with love, peace and lots of beautiful traditions!
