Oh, yes, we did have Christmas and it was both wonderful and sad. Only sad in that we missed all our children and grands who weren't with us this year. Wonderful just because Christmas is a wonderful time of thanksgiving for the birth of our Savior!
We had a nice Christmas Eve service with children reading the Christmas stories and lots of singing.
After church we came home and had pizza. I insisted we keep it simple this year!
I did, however, have poppers so it may look like we had been drinking, but we really hadn't!
Some friends came and celebrated with us.....they had never seen poppers before and may have confirmed in their minds that we are really crazy! Mickey is holding up an unpopped popper.
Since I've seen that I don't look so great in a crown, I no longer aim to be queen.
