Christmas Eve

Last night was Christmas Eve Communion at the church.  At our church we have a tradition of opening the church from 5-8 pm on Christmas Eve.  It is not a service but a time when we personally serve each person/family communion and pray a prayer of blessing over them. 

The staff members gather to be served last and and afterwards it's our family's tradition to go out for Chinese food.  We always invite the staff members to go along as well as a few other friends at times as well.  The following are some photos from Christmas Eve Communion as well as our time at the Chinese Restaurant.  We took up one whole section.  We also exchanged gifts as we normally do and had a lot of fun.  Most of these photos are self explanatory but for the ones that are not I'll put a caption.  I'm sure I'll be posting more on Christmas Evening of the day's events, so for those who are having a relaxing Christmas day and actually reading blogs ...enjoy.  :)    I hope you are having the most amazing Christmas ever!  xo




Last year we took a goofy photo of Cathy and Tom, Larry and I, and Pastor T and Misty looking up at the lights.  It ended up being our favoritre photo last year and I said, "hey let's take that goofy pose again" so we did...for no particular reason.





We took up this whole section plus two more tables.

We got this "air gun" for Pastor T and he LOVED it.  
My husband just HAD to shoot it.  [sigh]
