Everyone gathered up north. Church on Christmas Eve was beautiful. A small county church where we sang Christmas Hymns and had readings from the Bible and a short sermon…and a candle lighting while singing Silent night.
Stockings were hung across from the Christmas tree.
After each arrival more stockings were hung.
Finally everyone was there including one beau, one fiancee and one girlfriend.
My five or “The Five” tallest to shortest left to right. This is also their birth order right to left.
Proof of tallness.
We had a lovely brunch with several different kinds of egg bake, some little smokie sausages wrapped in bacon, caramel rolls, fruit and an assortment of cookies.
The tree was beautiful!
It was so pretty that someone had to inspect it many many times.
Hey Mikey! Tree and Ornament Inspector!
We ended the afternoon with a white elephant gift exchange…I got a sign which I donated to Noah, and Far Guy got a pair of pink slippers that he donated to me.
We are blessed to be able to gather everyone together on Christmas morning.
