Christmas 2009

This was our first Christmas away from family (since I obviously wasn't going to be traveling...). While we'd been a little sad when we first realized we'd be alone, we actually had a wonderful day! God has been so good to us in giving us friends that feel and act like family, that welcomed us into their homes and gave us lots of good food!

We started out the day by enjoying french toast, reading the Christmas story from the Storybook Bible, lighting our advent wreath, and then opening presents together. Currie then stuffed his first turkey and we headed off to church at OOC. (We've always wanted to attend their Christmas service, but have always been out of town.) After church we did a little more cooking, then headed over to enjoy quite a feast at our friends' house.
