Today has been a busy day with lots of cooking, crafting and wrapping of gifts -- yet it has been a good and somewhat relaxing day as well. This morning I finished two personalized aprons for our oldest granddaughters -- 9 and 11. They were so pleased when they unwrapped them tonight. These aprons were made from dish towels and turned out so cute. I used a pattern from Gooseberry Patch Christmas book 12. Maybe soon I can post pictures; we will see.
We traditionally have Christmas Eve Soup on December 24. It is basically a potato soup made with carrots, celery and cream and garnished with cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. Sometimes we have bread or rolls with it; tonight we had pizza. Dessert was Christmas cookies and ice cream.
Over on my Christmas blog I posted the link to these

I have been musing much today on what Jesus left to come here to this sinful earth to be born as a baby in a stable, only to grow up to die for our sins. He truly was, as the songwriter has put it, born to die. I am overwhelming thankful for His sacrifice on my behalf.
Wishing you all a wonderful day tomorrow!
