How was your Christmas?
Did you do anything fun? Memorable? Start a new tradition? See family or friends?
Christmas at the Lynn Rush household was quiet, which is exactly how I like it. You may have heard me talk about the mega church we belong to. Membership is up to about 12,000 people. So, you can imagine it was pretty crazy around the holiday, right?
They had several services, so we went to the one on Tuesday, the day before Christmas Eve. It was fairly small..only about 2,000 people versus a packed house of over 3,000. It was a great service.
We started a new tradition. My sweet hubby came up with a great idea. On Christmas Eve we went out to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. Admit it, you can’t beat CHEESECAKE for a Christmas Eve treat, right? Then, after eating our scrumptious dinner, we drove around the area with a little stack of $20 bills and handed them out to people. Just random people sitting at bus stops or people tuck working Christmas Eve, things like that.
We got some strange looks, but then some really appreciative looks. It was such a great experience. We decided to do that every year.
We ended the night with a drive through the neighborhood looking at Christmas Lights. The next morning we made strawberry crepes and sugar cookies.
Here are some pictures:
I hope you had a fantastic Christmas Eve/Day. What did you do?
