Yesterday the big girls scrubbed twenty pounds of potatoes for our Christmas dinner tomorrow, and I did some last minute food prep as well. With preparations done, we relaxed and Celebrated what we now know is Christmas Adam.
Our cyber-friends the Snows, enlightened us that before “Eve” comes “Adam.” Thus as tonight will be Christmas Eve, last night was Christmas Adam! (Please do pray for the Snows. Melissa’s caring bridge site is linked on the sidebar of this blog, and the doctors suspect her time with her family here on earth is short.)
We finished our Advent readings, a brief time of prayer, and then our own “little family’s” gift exchange.
Our first out of town guests arrived last night, with more coming tomorrow. Ken decided the shovel wasn’t sufficient for the snow, so his dad came by to plow with the Bobcat. Keegan was fascinated.
Tonight we will celebrate more, and enjoy the real Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke.
