Christmas Farmhouse Tour 2012

Thank you for stopping by for a visit!
We have some important traditions at our farmhouse each Christmas.
One is WE ALL COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.
Many of our family is in the ministry or works at church, so it is difficult
at best to take off...but somehow we manage to be together
at Christmas!

We plan a wonderful meal and everyone brings a special item that they are good at making...
and loads of deserts.
All the little ones open gifts first....
when we are done,
we all join hands and pray...
for the coming year and all it will bring.
The most important tradition is keeping Christmas Nativity oriented.
We read in Luke the Nativity story about
baby Jesus...we have a lot of little ones so we keep things quick and moving right along!
