Christmas plans

How will you be spending your Christmas this year? What are your plans? I would love to hear about them!

Back when we lived in Texas, our Christmases were very very busy! Both sets of grandparents lived within 5 miles of us. We would spend Christmas Eve with one set. Then, on Chistmas morning, it would be only the 4 of us up until about noon, when we would drive to my other grandparents' house, where we would spend the rest of Christmas Day. We were rushing here and there, and though it was busy, we really enjoyed it! Now, however, the closest family we have are an our and a half away, and we usually see them a few days after Christmas. So now, the 4 of us enjoy a leisurely Christmas morning. We wake up around 8, open our presents, and then eat a special breakfast (i.e. chocolate chip pancakes, cinnamon rolls, or french toast). The rest of the day is spent watching Christmas movies (i.e It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol) and enjoying the gifts.

So, what about you? What are your Christmases like? And what's your very favorite part about Christmas?


  1. Dear Rebekah, I'm just dropping you a note to tell you I got your email and you can expect a very LONG reply. ;) Because it will be long, I hope you understand if it takes me some time to write - time is a bit tight right now.

  2. Hi, Anna! Thanks for letting me know. I look forward to receiving. it. But, take your time! :)

  3. Our close family mostly lives so close, we're with relatives a lot on Christmas Day.

    My favorite part of Christmas, other than what it means in itself, is CHRISTMAS HYMNS, especially the folk song kind of ones. Oh, there are so many ... here's a verse from an old one ...

    "The blessed Son of God only
    In a crib full poor did lie;
    With our poor flesh and our poor blood
    Was clothed that everlasting good.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

  4. I like Christmas hymns as well!

    Have a great time with you family this Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!
