Even though we celebrated Christmas in February earlier this year (a week after bringing Ethan home from Korea), this will be our first Christmas (in December) with Ethan, so it’s a very exciting time for us!
It’s also a busy time. I had a Christmas Eve service at Centre Grove tonight at 7:00 pm and Joleen had services at 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm, which is probably finishing up as I write.
We put Ethan to bed between services (Grammy and Pappy are here too). As we dressed Ethan for bed and prepared for devotion, I kept telling Ethan, “Tomorrow is Christmas, tomorrow is Christmas …” He didn’t really seem to get it, though. 🙂
After EBT (“Ethan’s Bed Time”), we wrapped Ethan’s gifts and placed them under the tree. We are looking forward to our first Christmas morning with Ethan. He loves the tree, and likes to turn on the lights, and it will be interesting to see how he reacts to it in the morning.
One of the photos below is from the second round of professional photos we’ve had taken (see the first from March 2008 here). The others are of our Christmas tree.
It’s the night before Christmas. Tomorrow is Christmas!
