I'm spending the first part of Christmas at work. When I get off at 7:30am I will go home and open gifts with the family, sleep for awhile and then have my mom, sister and her family over for a Christmas dinner with turkey and all the trimmings! I love getting together with my family for the holidays and am glad that some of us are close enough, physically, to get together.

Christmas Eve is our time together as a family, me, Brian and the kids. It's a fasting day, so we don't have a big feast. We do open our presents and play video games/board games together. Christmas morning we are up early for church, then we spend time with my parents and then Brian's family.

Our tradition is....
Church on Christmas Eve, followed by pizza. We open the gifts given by my parents. We always put out a piece of Baby Jesus' birthday cake for Santa. (We always make a birthday cake for Jesus as a way to keep the emphasis where it should be.)

On Christmas Day, it's Santa's gifts and the gifts from the rest of the family. Basic breakfast and then cooking prime rib for Christmas dinner. A trip to the barn to see the horse and then eating with a table full of family. Games after that.

Friday night I have invited an African family over for dessert and a Christmas movie plus I have gifts for them. They leave on vacation the following day.
Sunday we'll have a visiting pastor at the Kanda Church to give a Christmas message and communion.
Christmas Eve I'll have a few over for dinner and then I will go to the Bongolo Church to attend their Christmas Eve service which will include music and skits.
On Christmas Day we foreigners (Americans plus one Canadian) will have a Christmas meal together. A visitor brought a turkey from America for our meal.

Merry Christmas to the Omaha Team!
