J. has to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I am not sure but it seems like it has been a long time since that has happened. We decided to celebrate early, on Friday, so that we wouldn't be rushed for time together.
The day was wonderful. We read the Christmas story together, opened gifts, shared a yummy breakfast of Overnight French Toast and sausage, played with our new toys, watched a movie, read books, and then later enjoyed a delicious ham with scalloped potatoes, veggies, rolls and sparkling cider. To finish the day, we sang "happy birthday" to Jesus and ate birthday cake.
We wish you a Merry Christmas!
