Christmas Eve

= best Christmas eve ever! Every Christmas Eve is spent in Newport with grandma and grandpa styll. It's normally just my family which consists of chris, mom, dad, megan, GF, GM, Janet and Bob. This year 5 more people were there!!! My family from Tennessee came out to spend Christmas with us!!!! It was the first time in 21 years that we were all together for Christmas!!! Well everyone except for Stephanie who is in Iraq and we missed her so much. Christmas eve was so precious. I could hardly eat my dinner because I just wanted to soak it in, I kept looking around the table and really couldn't believe that we were all together. It made grandma and grandpa so happy and that was the greatest gift ever. We all went to church together (half of us walked there in the rain), we sat around and shared memories and I was thanking God for the precious family He has blessed me with. Family is such a gift from God.
