Christmas 2015 has come and gone. While I love the advent season and all of the anticipation building up to the celebration of Christ’s birth, I’ll admit I am ready to get back to my daily routine. In the same way that I love Mondays, I love the after Christmas return of regular bedtimes, meals and laundry (always laundry).
As much as I love bedtime (and you know I do) we like to prolong our Christmas Eve celebrations. After the candlelight service at church, we come home to food baked by the children, a warm fire and lots of talking and giggling.
Finally, after bedtime arrives, Chuck and I fill the kids stockings and go to bed ourselves.
Our Christmas day was filled with good food, LEGO, board games, puzzles and family…
..and prime rib. I cannot neglect the fact our Christmas dinner was filled the magic of perfectly cooked (thanks Mom!) prime rib. And mashed potatoes (filled with caramelized onions), gravy and Caesar salad. I’m sure there was more food, but seriously, with that lineup, who needs anything else?
I hope your Christmas was merry and bright, filled with the love of family and friends and the appreciation of Christ’s birth.
