Merry Christmas!

Today, Christmas Eve Day, was our Christmas celebration so it has been very Merry around here.

Kim, Marc, Aaron, Adam and Evan were here for dinner and the afternoon.  We did fondue, which is a leisurely meal. Everyone agreed it turned out well.  More on that later.

I am so excited about the gift they gave us—a fire ring!  It has deer and elk cutouts around the side, just like the one I have admired so often. It came with a Lowe’s gift card for anything else we might want to complete a landscape area down by the new pond.  Then to top it off, they are going  to help us with the whole project next summer! 

Our Colorado family did not come back for Christmas. They were here for Thanksgiving and it was a super celebration then. We missed them today.  They brought our gift when they were back in November.  It’s been under the tree since then.  Such a temptation to peek.  I kind of thought it was a bottle of wine, but I didn’t know there were four dessert wine glasses, hand decorated by Carly and a bottle of premium Colorado Port. My goodness it is good. 

The day ended with the candlelight service at church.  We are Blessed.
