It always goes way too fast. We had a perfect day yesterday at my daughter’s house. She is an amazing cook, and presented us with a beautiful and delicious feast.
It was fun to hear the teens and younger kids at a table in another room, having so much fun together. All nine of my grandchildren together for Christmas happens only once in maybe three or four years, but they all seem to enjoy reconnecting.
Later, a family from our church joined us for dessert, and we enjoyed singing carols together. Lots of musical talent in our family and theirs.
My South Dakota crew left around 8:30 this morning. It’s always so hard to say goodbye. The Germany family will be up soon. They’re going to an Eagles game tonight, will come back here to sleep, and then journey through Virginia to South Carolina to see friends and then my daughter-in-law’s family.
I’ve done very little cooking this week. My South Dakota son is turning into quite a chef, and he treated us to some wonderful meals. I’ve been thoroughly spoiled.
It’s certainly been a Christmas to remember. We are thankful.
