Christmas Eve Ronnie and I attended service at the campus we were married in. It was such a sweet sweet time of reflection and celebration. I remembered walking down that same aisle, singing worship songs with my husband and all our friends and family, and asking God to be the center of our lives. And I celebrated the birth of Jesus who has been holding my life in His hands, and blessing me beyond imagination.
After Church, we came home and I got started cooking. I made egg casserole to cook in the crockpot, and also made cinnamon rolls for Christmas Morning. I am hoping this is just one of our traditions we can carry on together as we wake up together every Christmas morning, and share with our future babies! We also carried on an old tradition from when I was a kid and opened one Christmas present: Our Christmas Jammies. Maybe next year we will get Jak and Ollie Christmas jammies too.
Christmas Day this year was so wonderful. We had some of my family that lives here in town over, plus a few friends who do not have family in town. Dinner didn't go as smooth as Thanksgiving, I didn't quite have the entire timing thing down with all the things that needed to cook in the oven, but that was okay. Dinner was still served, the wine flowed, the food was delicious and the conversation was great.
Yesterday I ran a few errands with my mom and Ronnie took down the majority of the Christmas decorations. I sure love the lights and tree and the decorations, but after a month of being in our living room, the tree was barely hanging on. We both were ready to not have pine needles everywhere and get our house back together. After putting the house back together, I parked myself in my PJ's and slippers and curled up on the couch. It was heavenly.
Lucky for me, I still have three more days of my weekend before I have to go back to normal life.
