I don't have my pictures ready to post yet - yes I am slow getting these done. We spent Christmas Eve day at church and then with Dave's family. At night, we always open our own family's gifts. We start off by reading the Christmas story from Luke 2 and then light a candle on our birthday cake for Jesus. Shaelyn was pretty excited by most of her gifts. She would open them and say, "Wow" and then, "what is it?" Katelyn and Chelsea received digital cameras so they were busy trying to figure them out. We got to bed pretty late and knew this would cause problems for the morning. Chelsea and I had to be up by 7:00 to get to church to play in the orchestra. So lucky Dave and Katelyn got to work with Shaelyn who was tired from last night. But they all made it there. We had an excellent church service. For dinner, we went to Dad's house. Mostly, we hung around throughout the day, enjoying pool and other games. We took the Christmas tree down at night, much to Shaelyn's disappointment but I was ready for it. Now, we get to enjoy a little vacation and hopefully some rest. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too.
