This weekend was filled with so many fun-filled Christmas memories. Saturday we decorated and threw our big annual Christmas party for our big (and still growing) family. It was so much fun seeing everyone and getting all of the cousins together. This year’s theme was “Mad for Plaid”and we all wore some form of plaid! We ate great food, watched football and enjoyed some much-needed family time.
Sunday we went to church and heard a wonderful Christmas message that really encouraged and inspired us. I saw my best friend who is having her baby tomorrow and go all caught up with her and we had so much fun talking baby!
Tonight we finally find out the gender of my cousin’s twins and we are so thrilled we can’t hardly stand it! My guess is that she is having one boy and one girl, but we will find out soon! This year, we have so much to be thankful for. It is always an encouragement to me when I see families who are struggling and are still so positive or friends who are very ill remaining faithful and content in their time of need or trials. It makes me realize that we are so blessed and have every reason to be praising God in this season. I hope that no matter what you are going through, or if your life is actually going very well right now, to remember the reason we celebrate Christmas, spread the good and bless someone this holiday season. Even if it is just with a little smile. You have no idea what a smile can do to brighten a person’s day. 🙂
Have you attended any holiday parties this year?
