Good afternoon from here in Kansas, wishing you a Merry Christmas. Other than church this morning, we did our "celebrating" Friday and yesterday. Church this morning was a reading then a few Christmas hymns, another reading, a few more songs, and another reading and a few more songs. With so few of us there (about 24) one member called us to all come to the front of the church to sing Joy to the World as a group instead of spread out all over the church. I agree that did make it much more special. In my picture are the gifts from my middle daughter. She painted me that picture and I think she did an awesome job. My oldest daughter gave me a monkey set for the bathroom as well as a Christian Christmas CD. My youngest daughter, knowing I've not been able to afford my breakfast drink for a long time, got me 3 canisters of Ovaltine. In the adult gift exchange game at our family gathering party, I came home with 2 boxes of Hershey's Pot of Gold chocolates. (which I've already eaten too many of) I hope all of you have had a very Merry Christmas!

It is nice that your celebrating was spread over several days. It just seems to make more sense for many people.

It was great but I'm glad it's past and I can try to get things back to "normal"

That picture is beautiful. Your service sounded lovely. We had ours yesterday, also a combination of songs and message.

I wish we would that sort of hymn sung Sunday a lot more often.

Mine has been very nice. Watched a three part documentary entitled "Who Is Jesus?" from the History Channel. I'm not religious but am curious. Is it the Carnation Instant Breakfast that you get? I like to have a glass of ice cold milk before bedtime. Those chocolates sure sound good. My daughter and I splurged on a box at the beginning of the month and enjoyed them one evening.

Yes, its Carnation Instant Breakfast that I got for years, but Ovaltine has the same vitamins and was just $5 for 36 servings compared to about the same of the Carnation for 10 servings.
