GEMS Christmas Craft & Cookie Exchange+ Family Traditions
Oh what fun! Bless the Lord! Christmas music, cookies, hot coco, crafts, and playful children.
We talked about our families traditions, some interesting things. One family hides baby Jesus and the child who finds Him gets to put Him in the manger Christmas morning.
We do a birthday party on the Eve for the new King with our family & friends. Christmas morning I get the kids up and read Luke's story of the Saviors birth, then open presents. We eat left overs all morning and afternoon, then head to my mom's for dinner. Chinese this year, oh happy days! Who says it has to be turkey or ham?
The important thing is we are together as we bless the Lord.
I pray all who read this will find you Jesus, with comfort and peace. Thank you for coming and saving me.
