Christmas Eve is my favorite, I love it more than Christmas day because of the anticipation and the family which always surrounds me. This year my dad read us the Christmas story from the bible and explained it in greater detail, giving us historical references to help us understand what else was going on in the world at the time of Christ's birth.
I feel extremely blessed to have such a beautiful family, one who values their time together and makes efforts to be together as much as possible. I am already home sick! Our Christmas vacation was better than hoped, and having Lincoln to share it with made it that much better.
