So what are your Christmas traditions? I'm curious!
Since we moved to South Africa our church has a early morning Christmas service which I really like. Clint preaches a sermon around the theme of the Saviour's birth and we sing carols. It really sets the mood for the day. Because Clint preaches every Christmas (except last year) this means we are usually in the Hillcrest area on Christmas day, far from both of our sides of the family. So its fun this year to have a "bigger" family (i.e. Noah is getting big enough to understand a little tiny bit) and to celebrate it with him. Every day he brings me baby Jesus and says "baba!" and he brings me the three wise men together from our nativity. I love it.
My favorite Christmas music is from "A Charlie Brown Christmas." I love the movie itself, its just so cool how the message is so clear when Charlie is all depressed and when Linus tells the story and reads from Luke 2 what Christmas is actually all about. The soundtrack has been playing alot in our house the last few weeks.
This year we are going to Capetown and flying back Christmas eve. (I am so excited, Capetown is so beautiful this time of year!) So I get Christmas with just my hubby and Noah! So fun. Since its Summertime we are going to have a braai (bbq). Not like sipping hot chocolate on a cold day, but still very fun! So what do you guys do on Christmas day to celebrate? Tell me all about it!
Happy Birthday Jesse!
