In the weeks prior to December 25, we received several packages in the mail from grandparents far away. On Christmas Eve we opened one gift-- new pajamas for the family! The presents were revealed after enjoying a Chinese supper, and experiencing vespers and candle service at the nearby Lutheran church.
The girls took a notion to treat us to breakfast in bed.
I didn't think about taking a picture of the breakfast 'trays' until I'd already cleaned up the juicy oranges!
|eggnog, hot tea, cinnamon rolls, & fresh fruit|
Riley's activity of choice for the day was playing in the snow. So out we went for a few circular spins on tubes.
Then we sat down to dinner of chicken fried steak, tossed salad, and mashed potatoes.
And Chocolate Eclair Dessert.
We also had a Winter Scavenger Hunt, played Mexican Train & Musical Chairs, and called our distant-in-miles family, generally having a great day!
We are blessed indeed!
Blessed Belated Christmas Everyone!
