Families love being together at Christmas and mine is no exception. We love the time we can spend with each other, the food, the friends, the season, celebrating the birth of Jesus. After Norman's family Christmas Eve get together I attended the Christmas Eve candlelight service at church along with my son and his girl friend and what a blessing we received. Then Christmas morning it was up early to stop by my friend David's house to pick up the fried turkey breast that he does for us every year and on to mother's for the day.
The tree was waiting patiently, with all the presents piled up under it, for the children to arrive.
The little man got a basketball set from Santa.
While the little girlie just wanted to get some sleep.
While it was hard for me to celebrate Christmas this year after losing Norman last month, I rejoiced in the other ones we were able to celebrate together and to know that one day soon we would all be together with our Savior in heaven where we could celebrate the birth of Jesus for eternity.
