Adams' Family Christmas
We had Christmas as a family on Christmas eve's eve this year. We started some new traditions this year we hope to continue. We had a big breakfast for dinner. (Which is our favorite!) We made hot chocolate and read the story of Jesus' birth from the Bible. We prayed and thanked God for sending Jesus to earth to be born a human and die as our saviour. Next, we opened our gifts. We had a wonderful Christmas! We were so blessed to be able to get the kids some of the things they asked for. Tim got me the kitchen-aid mixer I have wanted for years. He got a awesome new leather jacket. Even our dog, Kole, got what he wanted! (candy cane bones) Grandma Nancy and Grandpa Louis had mailed their gifts to us this year since we couldn't be together. They sent some fun games for the kids and I got some Watkins baking stuff. (Which I totally love!!) Tim got some comfy new house shoes. Even though Christmas is not about the gifts, it's so nice to know people put lots of love and thought into their gifts for you.
