Christmas Eve is one of the most fun times for our family. We have our big dinner that night. I make sure there is lots of food, because I do not intend to work on Christmas Day. We had Jerome's brother Ayin and his wife Joy and little Joanne over. We exchange gifts with them and I also give out this year's ornaments. Every child gets a new keepsake ornament every year. When they grow up they will beautiful ornaments (with lots of memories).
We had an impromptu Mary and Joseph play. I missed it, but Wokelle is a mighty Joseph.
Mary dressed all in white to be the narrator.
Grandma finally made it from the land of sparkle and shine to enjoy Christmas with us.
Joanne gets a present!
The only ornament I got a picture of. Riane is holding her gold Baldwin piano. This was big piano year for Riane as she played a lot and even joined the praise team. I went with a gold theme - Braydon's was a cross, Mary a butterfly, Adela and angel, Wokelle a little red fire truck and Ricky a train.
