This is the night that our family has been eagerly anticipating for a year. Tonight is different from many. We went to church at 4:00 and then delivered cookies to the firefighters who have to work tonight. We were treated to an all out tour of the firehall, trucks and some equipment. After ordering pizza in for supper, we opened one present (jammies of course) and snuggled on the couch for some movie time. What a wonderful and blessed Christmas Eve this has been. I am sure this is the first *annual* Christmas Eve tradition for our family and I look forward to many more like it.
Tomorrow we will enjoy our traditional Cinnamon Sticky Buns... the very same buns we ate growing up at home. We will take a few minutes to read the Christmas story and remember why we truly celebrate Christmas. While the buns bake, Doug and I will watch the kids open their presents which is a highlight of the day.
I hope this Christmas is as wonderful and special for you and your family as it is for ours.
