 thought I would share some pictures of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.....

We were so happy to have Josh and Rebecca join us for Christmas Eve....

Of course to keep tradition we had a good game of hockey. It was the first skate on our ice this season. It was just as smooth as ever. The snow stopped just long enough to enjoy the ice.

Rebecca got this jersey for Josh for Christmas...Isn't it cool??

With this many people in the family there is always someone to play a game with. We did plenty of that!

And as always way too much yummy food.
The dinner menu was turkey, perogies, creamed corn, cherry jello, stuffing and salad.

And of course there was lots to talk about as it had been awhile since we had all visted with Josh and Rebecca.
It was great to catch up. We sure miss our daily chats.

Another family tradition is dipping fruit in a chocolate fondue on Christmas Eve.
Not always the most graceful thing to eat. Go Dad :)

And here is some of the beauty of the season.

Rebecca gave this picture to Mom for Christmas...Are they not just so sweet??

So even though the weather outside was frightful, the fire was indeed delightful and so was all the great memories we made this Christmas.
I hope that you all had a GREAT Christmas too!

-MeRrY ChRiStMaS-

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:1-14

Thank-you to Raechelle for taking these pictures :)

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
