Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating Christ's birth! Our month has been extremely busy and full of unexpected blessings and challenges. Such is life, right!? :) We did have a great time celebrating Christmas with my family though!
During the day on Christmas Eve, my sister, brother-in-law, and their kids came over to my parents and we spent the day relaxing, playing, and cooking!
In the evening, most of my family attended a Christmas Eve service together. It was such a gift to sit with Josh and the boys (as well as my parents, siblings and their families) and enjoy worshiping together instead of from the platform!
After church we gathered in the "clubhouse" at the apartment complex where my mom, brother and sister work to have our big, family Christmas celebration!
On Christmas morning, we had fun exchanging gifts and then spent most of the day relaxing. Josh and two of my sisters' boyfriends (that is two sisters each with one boyfriend) had a blast jamming on their guitars.
The boys got an abundance of LEGOs, so this kept them very busy most of the day! :)
Christmas Day ended with an intense table tennis tournament, followed by an out of control nerf gun battle between Josh, my youngest sister, and my mom!
Yes, that is my hubby violently attacking my mama (who, by the way, started this whole fight)!
They have a "special" relationship! :P Also, that is indeed Caden hiding under the table! lol
Tonight and tomorrow night, Josh will be playing in The Starry Night Coffeehouse at Warm Beach Lights of Christmas. These are our last two Christmas concerts and then we are finished with our Christmas performances and will be back to our normal "presentation" next Sunday.
On Saturday, we will head back across the mountains on our way "home"! We are enjoying our family time, but are also so looking forward to our first full month at our new home!
