(Photos from Christmas 2016)

Anyone that knows me will tell you Christmas is my favorite time of year.  I love

about our Creator is played in public places and people seem to have a bit more joy in their heart to reach out to others.    Most years I begin playing Christmas music on Halloween... or earlier!   If I could have it my way, Christmas would be celebrated all year

long and everything would be dripping in tiny warm white lights.  But the most important tradition is making sure everyone we know has a place to spend the holidays with homemade food.


I intentionally wanted to give my children a place they would want to come home to every year.  A place where they felt connected, welcomed, accepted, loved and

genuinely interested in.  And with those being a foundation, Christmas festivities that would shape our time together that will become holiday traditions.  A few of those things are craft making, cooking together, trimming the tree, watching Christmas movies,

sipping hot cocoa and seeing Christmas lights in the neighborhoods, making snowmen, baking gingerbread men, singing songs and dancing, and so much more.  It's really about getting them involved in whatever it is we're doing and making it fun.  If it starts to become stressful then we won't do it!
