Christmas Part III - Our Christmas - Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

Third Annual Christmas Eve Ginger Bread Houses
 We were excited to be "home" this year on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for the first time!  We were looking forward to going to Christmas Eve service at our own church, have lots of family time, and have a "slower", non-rushed/non-traveling, Christ-centered day.  After church on Christmas Eve, we had pizza, made our third annual Gingerbread (graham cracker) houses, and put the star on our advent calendar (Summer's favorite part!).  Then I dug around in our 'gift box' (I shop at consignment sales throughout the year) to see what goodies our kiddos would get this year.  I wrapped while Paul got our delicious Christmas Day ribs ready for cooking.  On Christmas morning we had French Toast, read the Christmas story out of Summer's Bible, opened presents, and played all day.  I had too many videos (I love hearing their voices!) and cute pictures to post them all here, so I just made a little video to document our evening/morning a bit.  Enjoy :).
