A Comings Family Christmas
I thought I would put up some pictures to show you what went on Christmas day at the Comings household.
Itacyara and I decided that one of our family traditions would be a creative telling of the Christmas story. This year, it was flanelgraph. Next year it may be puppets, or some other form of story telling. Our goal is for our kid(s) to be as excited about the story as they are about the presents.
This was our fifth Christmas together, but it was the first that we celebrated completely as a family unit, without going anywhere else. The lovely and talented Itacyara outdid herself with Christmas decorations, and with the food spread you see above. Not pictured are the Brazilian snacks (cochinhas and pasteis) that we had on Christmas Eve.
Michael was thrilled with the presents he received, including this Lego table, complete with Legos.
Itacyara bought me The Last Juror by John Grisham. I finished it that day.
We had a marvelous Christmas together, and hope you all did the same. Whatever the case, let us not forget that the whole reason we celebrate is because God gave us the greatest gift of all, salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
