We started our Christmas Eve Celebration with Mike's immediate family. His mom prepared a delicious lunch for us and we spent some time enjoying everyone's company before celebrating with gifts. We were really blessed with some items we've really been wanting this year!
After a fun afternoon with Mike's family we packed up the car and headed out to Allendale. First we went to church. Our church has a tradition of doing a "family Christmas" for our Christmas Eve service. Whoever wants to can participate, whether sharing a song, poem, story, or Bible Verse. Our church was decorated beautifully for Christmas!
After the church service we headed over to my parent's house for our family celebration. This year was extra special because my Grandma (from Canada) was with us!
