Christmas Eve 2010

We started off our Christmas festivities right! We got to go to HCBC’s Christmas eve service for the first time! It was beautiful. Eli got to go to the stage to sing with all the other kiddos.

Here is Eli & Dada with their candle. Eli is NOT holding a match! It is someone else’s candle behind her.  She is holding a cracker, but it sure looks very pyro doesn’t it?

Behold! All the candles are lit up!

Lovely family pic thanks to our gracious friend Sol, who just happened to be at the right place at the right time to be our photog!

The service was so beautiful and jam-packed! The snow at the end is a very generous addition to an already beautiful service!  I ♥ HCBC!

Three hours later we were at my parents house for dinner. Here is the Kid Table. Eli got to eat with her best (only) first cousins in the whole world! Abigail the Brazilian baby model and Edson, the Sweetest 4 year old boy we know!

Speaking of models, here is my Sis modeling my first Ezer sling. I’m naming it Ezer because Jehovah Ezer means, God my Helper and I prayed for His Help the entire time I made that bag!! Particularly since I made it the night before!!  The pattern is by Amy Butler and she calls it the Birdie Sling... She is an awesome pattern writer!

Here is Kena with JD. She is holding her creations: An embroidered piña pillow she made for my mom & a family portrait she painted for our bro. We got one too. She is so talented!
