Christmas Eve 2007

I'm writing this blog....waiting for Santa ;O). This year Christmas Eve was at my house. I made some 'Reindeer Droppings'....formerly known as "No Bake Cookies" in other months of the year (this is a recipe I first had at the Fergason's house, I always loved "No Bake" days). Before dinner my family headed to the Christmas Eve service, one of my two favorites! I love the candle lighting service, and the symbolism behind it always brings me back to the baby who changed the course of (my) life. It started with a baby, was carried on by just 12 disciples and a band of believers, and now spans the earth. I wasn't there to witness all the miracles, but I've certainly seen enough in my life to know, believe, trust and follow and put my faith in the birth, death, and ressurection of Jesus! I loved something that was said tonight at the service, "Jesus is the reason for the season. YOU are the reason God sent His Son." After lights, dinner and some time spent throwing balls to Max, and being sat on by Lilly my family headed out to look at lights with my cousins' dog, Sandy. I have a very poor shot of a really amazing house that has a unique light display syncronized to music. I love Christmas Eve!
