We started early on Christmas Eve. My daughter and her family were over for a fine dinner prepared by my wife, Audrey. Our two step grandchildren were here as well and we enjoyed the typical things such as fine food, great desserts, the Christmas story, opening presence, gabbing, and of course, arguing about what the best computer system is: windows or Mac. Of course then we have to argue over the best phone also. Its pretty cool.
Then there was the Christmas Eve candlelight service, which of course has the minimal amount of candlelight. But there was caroling, communion, and a Christmas message. It was a delightful and meaningful service.
Then, on Christmas Day we visited Audrey's nephew whose mother was in town with her husband. This is my wife's sister. This, too, was a great visit.
Then on the Day after Christmas there was another family gathering at the nephew's house because another relative was in town for a visit. There is always food and fellowship. And this time a football game. Go Broncos. Go Tim Tebo. Hey, they won and I won a bet for a cup of coffee. Hope I don't get arrested for that.
The gist of all this: It was a great Christmas Holiday!
