I'll be Home For Christmas



We had a sweet little Christmas at "home." Christmas Eve Riley and I (I'd like to encourage you moms with little ones "helping" you in the kitchen, one day it will be worth the effort, I promise) cooked Chex Mix and Chocolate Bon Bons and Peanut Butter Fudge (my Granny's recipes full of sentimental memories)and delivered them to other friends that had to be "home" for the holidays. We went to a Christmas Eve Service at our Church and then to Mimi's for Dinner and presents.

We were "home" all Christmas Day singing "Happy Birthday to Jesus" eating His Birthday Cupcakes, Sausage Balls (Granny's recipe, of course) and other high calorie treats sweet friends brought over! Opened Presents, took out the trash and I witnessed Riley do her first load of laundry from sorting to hanging up (Hooray!!!).... Then got together with three other families to eat a wonderful Christmas Dinner. It is amazing to me how Christians can feel like family when you are away from your flesh and blood. We have experienced this amazing blessing every time we have moved.

That's what we've been up to lately. Now to the ice skating rink to burn off some of those Christmas Calories!

Mom, that was not the first load of laundry I have ever done! I have done at least four loads on my own!(haha)

Hey Bantas! Great to hear from you. We don't really know how this blog thing works yet. We do need to catch up. Can you email through the blog? What's the best way to communicate? Steven
