Ahh, Christms! What a season it is. This is our fifth Christmas here in the Huntsville Alabama area. I never thought I would live in the South, but I have to say that after six years I have to say that I like it. We had quite the Christmas this year and as always, I probably went a little overboard. I can't help it. I really do try to say that I will be conservative, but I just have so much fun. Of course, after all was bought and taken care of and we were settling down for the holiday, the Lamps' Christmas traditions could start. First up: Making cookies for Santa and those sneaky Pajama Elves.
And how can we forget about the sneaky pajama elves. I don't know if they come to your house at all, but every Christmas Eve, pajama elves ring the doorbell and leave brand new pajamas for the kids to wear to bed that night. They never get caught. Go figure. One year though, we will catch them one year.
Christmas Eve we try to remember our Savior. Sometimes we have a quick lesson about our Savior and sometimes (like this year) we have something just a bit longer. This year is was the Christmas devotional that is given by the church. We didn't get a chance to see it this year, but Jeremy had recorded it so we watched it on Christmas Eve. We read the Night Before Christmas, open one present and soon after that, the kids were up in their beds with thoughts and dreams of sugar plums dancing in their heads.
Now here we are....2014. I am full of resolutions and promises that this is going to be the best year yet. Come back often and find out. Happy New Year, Everyone!!
