Traditions for Christmas

This Christmas we have enjoyed "old traditions" and some "new traditions".  

Here is what we did:
Old Traditions:
Our advent calendar that tells the Christmas story 
Christmas Card tree
Breakfast Cake Christmas Morning
Christmas Memory book to record our time
Shopping for gifts for others and Angel tree gifts
Traditional Meal- Rotisserie Chickens and Homemade Pound Cake for dessert
Manor Christmas carolling
Christmas lights
Christmas Eve Service at the STONE

New Traditions:
Christmas Tree Farm in Elgin
Gingerbread house
Intentional gifts (we decided to give our kids one gift that would encourage them in something to be or work on in the coming year...WG-TBall set "team player"  Sally-Apron and pots - "Serving Others")
Acting out the Christmas story on Christmas morning

We truly felt the Joy of the truth of Emmanuel who came for our souls!  Merry Christmas!!
