DPP #24 Christmas with the Family

Last night we did Christmas with our family.  We had a lot of fun together.  Eric and I got each of the kids a little something and there were a few things under the tree from friends. 

But most of what was under the tree was little crafts and re-gifts from the kids to each other.  Lots of gifts for each other

One of my daily prayers is that my kids will be best friends and have deep true fellowship with each other.  It is so lovely to see how the Lord answers those prayers.

 We got Talitha a little Ugandan doll and it was so sweet how excited she was! :)

After gifts, we pulled out the mattresses and slept under our Christmas tree...as is our yearly tradition.

Then today, we made gift bags for all the kids at church.  At Immanuels Reformed Church in Salem, someone in the church had a lovely tradition putting together little gift bags for all the kids.  Our kids enjoyed these treats so much, so this year we decided to share that tradition with the kids here.  Our bags look a little different, though...as you can't get clementines and candy canes here... but we also thought that our new friends would appreciate tea, sugar, soap, biscuit cookies, and a few sweets a little more.
