Today our family celebrates "Lil' Christmas Eve". We adopted the tradition from our pastor back home in New England. His family has Norweigan background and my husband's side has Sweedish. So the day before Christmas, we start baking and doing those fun little things around the house as we get ready to celebrate the birth of Christ. We listen to carols while cooking and maybe a little bit of cleaning gets done. We finish up the wrapping and put the final touches on our decorations. We baked 3 different cookies today. We usually do much more but the time this year seemed to just get away from me and my little guy started to seem like he was getting a sick stomach. I'm praying not, since it will be no fun to have a sick child on Christmas, especially at his age. He's been waiting and waiting with very little patience, but then I don't blame him for that everyone loves presents.
Currently I'm a LCMS pastor's wife living in rural Wisconsin. We homeschool our 5 children ages 15 down to 6. I enjoy scrapbooking, quilting, crafting in general plus antiques and collectibles. One of my favorite items is primitive decor. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Come back often or sign up to follow my blog. You can do that through feedblitz or blogger.
