Christmas Eve 2018

We are soaking up the richness of this time together in so many ways…through the sweet spirit of our church’s Christmas Eve service last night followed by time with good friends playing fun games late into the night risking crossing paths with Santa and quietly cozied up at home together today.  🙂  It’s precious and peaceful.

Max wrote a 4-part a’cappella arrangement to this Chris Tomlin song and pulled it together for the Christmas Eve service with the help of his siblings and the Knight sisters!!!

I was also able to carry out the traditional singing of  “Silent Night” in German despite doubting whether or not I could pull it off with my limitations!  Yay!  Luckily, most people don’t know whether or not I’m butchering the enunciation anyway!!  Ha Ha…Yay!  This is for you, Oma 😉

Merry Christmas Rudy-boy!! We love and miss you so deeply!!

We’ll spend the rest of today relaxing and resting up for the invasion of Geyling cousins arriving tomorrow.  We’re looking forward to 4 days of extended family fun…as we anticipate Rolf’s family’s arrival, I can’t help but think about how thrilled Rudy would be to be here and in the middle of all the fun to come but I guess that’s true for me everyday.  Merry Christmas Rudy…give Jesus a birthday hug for us please!
