"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Christmas Eve

We started off our Christmas weekend attending Northland's Christmas Eve service with Marie, Sharon, Sarah, and Michael the day before Christmas Eve! The service was beautiful and the music was amazing as always. The boys did great attending the children's classes!
Matt and I spent the majority of Christmas Eve morning cooking and gearing up for the big DeMoor Family Christmas Eve. We had the honor of hosting this year since Steve and Lori are expecting their 3rd child anyday! I had fun decorating too! All of the cousins played really well together and had a great time dancing to the Veggie Tales Christmas movie. It's such a blessing for the boys to grow up near their cousins! Our Christmas Eve dinner was delicious, and there was hardly any room left for all of these wonderful desserts! Opening presents was so much fun, even though it was a bit chaotic with 7 kids! :) We were happy to have Aunt Mary Ann from Missouri with us this year too! Aunt Lori and Ali digging right into those presents! And Baby "Bob" too. :) Carson and Tanner LOVED all of their presents, and we had such a wonderful night spending time together as a family.
