Merry Christmas Eve!

i ran around town like a chicken with my head cut off this morning
running last minute errands
picking up groceries
and meeting a good friend for lunch

i've never been the type to be out and about on Christmas eve,
but that's just how it turned out this year
and it actually wasn't bad!
(well, i knew lunch would be wonderful, but the rest was a nice surprise)

now that everything's checked off the list though,
we've got the best part to look forward to:


Daniel got off work early, so we're all home
and there is nothing left to do but celebrate Christmas:
the coming of the Christ to earth, in a manger as a baby named Jesus
(read the Christmas story here)

our family is kicking off the Christmas celebration by:
- going to a Christmas eve service at our Church tonight
- giving the kids their Christmas jams
- spending time together
- wrapping up the last few presents
- trying to go to sleep, despite all the excitement
(let me tell you, Christmas morning is way more exciting for me as a parent than it ever was before)
- reading scripture, reminding ourselves of the good news and responding with joy!

"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased"
Luke 2:14

may the song of the angels 
be the Gospel song that causes your heart to sing this season, friends

Merry Christmas, from my little family to you and yours!
