Christmas Eve Dinner

This year Jared and I thought we would host a Christmas eve dinner with our family. I had so much fun decorating and preparing for the dinner. I actually made a turkey, for the first time and it turned out. Yes I gave myself a pat on the back for it as well. :) We read the First Presidency message from the Ensign from President Thomas S. Monson, and then we wrote a gift we could give to the Savior on a piece of paper and put it in the gift box for next year. It was a special tradition I hope to continue for the following years.
It was a fun night with family!

What a fun idea with the little gift boxes! You are so creative! Thanks for your little comment earlier, it was great to hear from you! I sure miss you too, hopefully we will come back to at least visit one of these years! hehe So you aren't the chorister anymore!? That is crazy! You were the best, such fun ideas, and you made it so fun. I honestly loved it! I was never really active when I was young, so the primary songs were a blur...but honestly, you made them fun and easier to remember! :) Anyways, this is getting pretty long. Thankfully we have blogs, facebook, email, phones, etc! Keep in touch! :)
