Christmas Eve 2008

I had such a good time on Christmas Eve. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Angela, and Rich came over around 4/5ish and we sat around eating some appetizers. Then we all went to our church's Christmas Eve service at 6:00. WOW! The church was completely packed. I think our new sanctuary seats something like 4000, but even that couldn't hold everyone. The choir loft was even stuffed. We ended up standing up against a wall in the back. Next year we'll know to get there earlier if we need seats I was content to stand in the back and sing carols about Jesus, swaying to the music with Isaac.

Scott said the sanctuary seats 4600. Thank goodness we were not in that crowd! No telling when we would have been able to leave. Standing wasn't bad at all. The message & participating in singing was great. Far greater; our being together as a family.
