Since getting married, Jake and I make sure that we celebrate Christmas at some point in the season, just the two of us. We've made a weekend of it in early December (2010), late January (2011), and this year decided to try a little earlier. Last weekend was a little rushed, but we managed to keep our tradition of Christmas Eve with appetizers, Bible reading, and a Christmas movie.

now this new one, lemon.
That afternoon we had planned to have our Christmas feast with some good friends, Hence and Lois. We enjoyed turkey, sweet potato, roasted brussels sprouts, and brown rice stuffing after a hunger-inducing hike, finishing off with PC Candycane ice cream. It was so nice to spend it with friends, and they even brought our little Christmas tree we had lent to them, making it seem even more like Christmas. What a wonderful weekend filling our hearts with the hope Christ's birth brings!
