And just like that, Christmas has come and gone. I thought perhaps today's post would be a last weekends events with photos to illustrate. Instead, I present something more like photo essay with a few words of explanation. Though I don't always hold the view that a picture is worth a thousand words, I think in this case photography will help you reminiscence of Christmas day with me.

Christmas Eve found my family and I visiting some dear friends and then my maternal grandparents before heading to an annual gathering at my aunt's house. We enjoyed visiting my Dad's family, eating good food and opening gifts. After getting settled in at home again, Dad read aloud the Christmas story from Matthew and we opened a few of our gifts. Mom popped in a Christmas movie and we unwound a bit before heading to bed.
On Christmas Day we enjoyed a church service with those we have been worshipping with, hearing a message on the Word made flesh. At home, we opened the rest of our gifts and had some time relaxing and finishing up tasks. In the mid-afternoon we were off to have fellowship at the home of close friends. We enjoyed a delicious dinner, gift-opening and sweet visits for several hours before leaving for home again.
How did you celebrate this Christmas?
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
1 John 1:14
