Christmas Day

The sun is shining, and our day has been filled with joy! We started by opening our stockings while savoring David's homemade cinnamon rolls. Since both sets of parents were quite generous, our tiny trees were graced with a bounty of gifts. We feel completely blessed.

Even Jack got a toy, and he was rather taken with it.

As for gifts from David and I, there were none. We took a family vote, and decided that this year adventure would trump toys. Instead of blowing our Christmas budget on "Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh," we booked a Gite (cottage) in the Alps! Our family Christmas present is a ski trip, and we leave bright and early tomorrow morning for a week in the French Alps. As I speak David is taking inventory on gloves and goggles. Stay tuned for photos from the slopes, our Christmas has just BEGUN to be celebrated!

For now, I have chicken to roast and a tarte aux pommes to bake--our first Christmas dinner in France. Love to all, and hopes that your Christmas is filled with the joy that comes from knowing that the SAVIOR has been born. He is our hope.
