Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is filled with as much tradition as Christmas day. We began the day by attending church. Emilia and Todd both sang during the service. It was wonderful to set a spiritual tone for the holiday and to visit with friends and neighbors.

During the evening we spend some time reading the account of Christ's birth in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon. We also watch the video of Christ's birth so that the kids will visualize what they have just read.

Afterward, the kids set up cookies for Santa and sparkling deer food in the backyard so that Santa's reindeer will know where to land when they stop at our home.
