December 25 - Christmas Day
We had a wonderful Christmas Day! We immediately began opening gifts, taking turns and enjoying each gift. I received some wonderful scrapbooking tools & supplies, exercise clothes & equipment, calendars, books, clothes, socks, a DVD and a Connect Four game. Robbie received collectible toys to add to his evergrowing collection, a calendar, books, clothes, socks, a Cleveland Browns apron, small tools for working on models, and Double Fifteen Dominoes. Nichole arrived around 10 o'clock, just in time for our traditional serving of pecan pie. We played quite a few games of Connect Four. Mama & Daddy arrived a little later and we all opened the gifts in our stockings. We enjoyed Christmas Dinner around 1 pm - turkey breast, ham, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, praline sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, deviled eggs, and rolls. Then we all played dominoes, which took quite some time as we got used to the new dominoes! Nichole left around 3pm and we watched The Nativity Story movie, a great reminder of the True Reason for the Season. We played another round of dominoes before Mama & Daddy headed home, then Robbie and I watched the Dallas Cowboys game. We finished off a perfect day relaxing in front of the fireplace, thankful for all our blessings.
