Losing Count is a Good Thing!
After a cold, chilly walk back to our friends’ house at midnight, after the 11 pm candlelight Christmas Eve service, we kissed and hugged each other good-bye and reminisced for a few minutes about another awesome, memorable Christmas Eve.
Appetizers and salad at one house.
It’s just not Christmas without Mary Did You Know on the violin.
Prime rib dinner at another house.
Never a dull moment around the tree.
Siblings – will they always love each other?
Dessert, gifts, and more excitement at our last house.
Will these kids remain friends for a lifetime?
I’m thankful for the anticipation and celebration, for long-time friends, family, laughter and memories made at Christmastime. I’d say we parents have done a good job in showing our kids how it’s done. Even if not close, the memories will remain, as we’ve lost count of the number of Christmas Eves we’ve spent together with these families.
And I’d say losing count over the years must be a good thing!
I’d love to hear of your special memories made this Christmas season?
