Merry Christmas!

Posted by Kaitlin Saunders in Blog on December 25, 2011

The thing I love most about Christmas, aside from remembering the true reason for the season, is traditions.  My husband and I have started a few of our own and it just makes the December air seem so festive.

Our delicious cinnamon rolls!  YUMMY!For instance, we always make a big batch of home-made cinnamon rolls Christmas Eve and then bake them up Christmas morning.  Oh, how I love the smell of those delicious rolls baking in the oven while we open presents from each other!  When the rolls cool down enough to frost, we always put gobs of cream cheese frosting over them and gorge ourselves before sharing them with the rest of our family.  Our siblings look forward to our rolls every year now!

Then after we prepare our cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve and sing carols at a Christmas Eve service, we come back to our cozy apartment, get into our most Christmasy pajamas and watch a favorite holiday movie.  This year we selected “It’s a Wonderful Life”.   And with my man by my side and our little baby growing day by day in my belly, well, it really is a wonderful life.

Merry Christmas everyone, and Happy Birthday, Jesus!  Thank you for coming to save us and giving us a holiday to celebrate your birthday!

Happy Holidays,
