Merry Christmas!

It has been fun for me to blog about my twelve days of Christmas!

But now Christmas is over.  It has been a great day celebrating the birth of Jesus.  From opening some gifts in the morning; going to church; finishing the gift exchange; and then getting dinner ready!  We ate and played and talked and laughed; especially while playing a game together.  We even cried some.  But the best part of all was spending time with family.  We aren't always together on Christmas day, but today we were.  Except for one.  And while we all miss Dad terribly, we can't be sad for him.  He is celebrating Christmas with the reason for the season Himself. I love and will always miss you Daddy, but I know I will see you again one day and we can celebrate Christmas together. Until then, we will continue to honor our Lord whom you served faithfully.  Thanks for your example and for always reading the Christmas story to us.  Your memory will not be forgotten.
