So another Christmas is over, and this is what our tree ended up looking like. My oldest two sons assembled the tree. Then the oldest son put the lights on it. Then the younger three and my mom put the ornaments on it. My youngest son began putting the ribbon on, but it did not completely work. So my husband made some minor adjustments and this is what it looked like after it was deemed to be complete.
We went to a candlelight Christmas Eve service that included singing, drama, Scripture readings and candles. It was a fairly good service. Christmas morning we planned on getting up and attending church, but our plans were changed. Our daughter woke up not feeling good, so we decided it was best to all stay home rather than split up the family.
My three sons helped keep their sister entertained. We had a quiet day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We had a pot roast, rice, green beans and corn along with my husband’s homemade biscuits.
We watched some movies as a family along with playing a rousing game of Yahtzee, which our oldest won. Then we fixed a buffet including tuna fish salad, shrimp salad, boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce, carrot sticks, crackers, cheese, olives, pickles and other items. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Now it is time to start preparing for the start of a new year. How did your Christmas go? I would love to hear from you.
