Early Christmas

As some of you may already know, I celebrated early Christmas last weekend! :D It's true. For the last couple of years, we've been celebrating early Christmas because my grandparents go to Florida over the winter. I would too if I had the chance, it's cold in Minnesota! Oh and just an FYI, these pictures are almost all not posed. Yes, so they bring out real personalities.
 My amazing parents!!!
 That would be my older brother. :D He's in high school, and well, a little crazy sometimes, but I still love him! Oh and, my cousin is under him.
 This is my other older brother and his girlfriend. They both got these little pans, the size of my hand, that you can make sandwiches and eggs in. They're really cute.
 The next day, my family and I went to my cousin's Confirmation. It was really good! I kept thinking to myself, "I'm next!" Yep! I'm getting confirmed in April.
After the church service, we went to the "after party." This is my youngest cousin, Brooke, and I. Some more pictures of her are HERE, at the end of the post. 

Luke 2:16-20
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. 
Do you have any Christmas traditions?


  1. Our family has a christmas tradition!

    We open all our presents on Christmas Eve, and save one special one for the morning to open. Then we go to the movies, and visit with all our friends and family!

    (We open them on CE because the bible does not specifically say that Christ was born on Christmas.)

  2. Hey! I was gonna email you about my mailing info but I don't have your email! Please contact me:


  3. Where we used to live there was a boardwalk on a lake and they would put lights up around the boardwalk. We used to go there every Christmas, to walk around the boardwalk and look at the lights. It was beautiful.


    P.S. What kind of church do you go to?
