Little Christmas Eve

Little Christmas Eve 008

We're all under one roof tonight. Here they are listening to their grandfather telling the history of our annual extended family extravaganza, an evening of music and readings and delicious food, including dishes with roots in my late mother-in-law's Swedish family. We heard Luke's story of the shepherds overtaken by angels, and The Night Before Christmas, and "Christmas is Coming, the Goose is Getting Fat" and Bach and Good King Wenceslas and, of course, The Grinch.

"It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes, or bags!"

Don't forget that. It's coming whether or not we get it all bought and wrapped.

It will be Christmas, soon.

  1. Your family is so beautiful. Life has been very broken in our family for some time now, but we are healing and mending and giving thanks for God’s goodness. Peace be with you.

  2. “We’re all under one roof tonight.” That’s the best part of Christmas. And I’m missing the fact that our “baby” won’t be with us this year, for the very first time. He’s spending Christmas in CA with his girlfriend and her family. We’re happy for them, but will miss him!
