My friend, Bob Byers, has been listing his family’s Christmas traditions over at Watchman’s Words. The Burrell’s have multiple traditions that always sound better on paper than they play out in real life. Among them is cutting our own trees, decorating them while eating finger foods, watching a movie or two right before Christmas, making fudge and chex mix, watching “A Christmas Story” at least once and then there’s the dreaded Christmas cookies. My mom used to torture us well into our 20’s by making a big batch of sugar cookies and then forcing us to ice them while she took movies and snapped pictures.
Nathan skipped out early to finish some Christmas wrapping and thankfully, Rene is here to help out with his artistic touch. Josh got more icing on his face than he did the cookies, but I don’t think it was an accident.
So with that…Merry Christmas to all my friends, family and readers who frequent this blog. May your Christmas celebration be filled with thanksgiving for the goodness of God and the gift of salvation.
