First Christmas

Tomorrow will be E's first Christmas here in the U.S.

I am so excited to see his face when he sees all the presents. ;o)

He's so funny. He really just takes so much in stride. When we went to get the tree, he was sort of confused I think, that we would bring a tree into the house, but I think that you can tell from previous pictures that he totally embraced decorating it.

He's enjoyed driving around looking at the lights on the houses. Down at the boardwalk on the beach there is a 30 block light display. We took the boys down a few weeks ago to look at the lights, he loved them. N is funny, he gets confused when people turn on their house lights before it's really dark outside. He told daddy last night that the stars had to be out before people could turn their lights on. He was very indignant. ;o)

Tonight we have church with my parents. I love the Christmas Eve service, it's my favorite. Tomorrow will be a low key day. We are blessed to have family close by. We will have some family over for a good sized breakfast and present opening. Then let the kids play with toys and just relax and enjoy the day together, then over to mom's house for a light dinner. This year we are going simple. I like that idea. ;o)

We will have a house guest as well. A dear friend, a young man, was going to have to spend Christmas eve and morning alone. His home life just makes me SO mad, but since there isn't anything I can do about that other than offer our home when he needs it... we offered to have him stay with us for Christmas. So he is. ;o) I am looking forward to having him there. And I know the boys will enjoy it as well, he's really a great kid!

I wish you all a wonderful and joyous Christmas. I pray that you feel the love, peace and grace that is offered in the form of our Lord and Savior who was born on this day.

Thanks for commenting on my blog! That's awesome that your son is doing that.. I'm sure he's having an incredible time. How long has he been there? Where is Wave Church at?
