What a wonderful Christmas Day! With no children to wake us up, we were able to sleep in. I fixed a sausage, cream cheese, and crescent rolls dough breakfast thingy, which we love. Church was delayed until 11:00, so we had a nice relaxed morning.
Church was great. We combined with the other ward in the building, so it was like a stake conference! Attendance was much larger than they had expected. The program was music with two speakers and was wonderful. What better way to celebrate the birth of the Savior than to be in church.
In the afternoon, Lisa, David, Ashby and Brooks came over. We had a honey-baked ham, potato salad, green beans, jello salad dinner. Lisa added sweet potatoes and fruit salad. It was very yummy. Then we opened presents. Ashby was so excited. She helped pass out the gifts and then helped everyone open them, too. She loved everything!
Later, we fixed chocolate fondue for a late dessert. As always, we loved it.
It has been a good Christmas Day and a good Christmas season. Trying to simplify and make things more Christ centered has made it even more so.
