"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience." Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006

Christmas Eve--Shepherd's Dinner

Every year on Christmas Eve we have a "Shepherd's Dinner."  We light candles, eat on the floor, and watch "The Nativity."  It is always a very special experience and one of our favorite Christmas traditions as a family!

This year I cooked a traditional Israeli meal.  Recipes are on my food blog HERE.

Sometimes I guess as parents, we cringe, but just go with it.
