Christmas Eve after church in the morning we set out the candles for the evening service. We line the entire driveway and the whole effect is quite pretty.
Elizabeth, Kathryn and Julianna lit all the candles while the rest of us prepared for the evening service.
These four did so well with their spontaneous prelude in the morning we decided to have them play the evening prelude as well.
Our friends Cullen and Tierney sang with Lydia and Daniel for the Christmas Eve service, as well as playing violin and viola.
We had a good evening visiting with our aunt and uncle’s family after church; playing games and talking, and of course eating!
Christmas Day we had a football game in the afternoon – Jonathan, Matthew & N’gella and Susanna beat Julianna, Carolyn, Lydia and Daniel soundly. The yard was extremely slippery but we had a lot of fun playing together!
