Our family had a wonderful Christmas celebration. It began with a lovely Christmas Eve service surrounded by our extended family of neighbors and friends, followed by Christmas morning opening presents with three boys, three dogs and two cats--Santa was indeed very good to us. A brunch of blueberrry pancakes with berries we picked over the summer was followed by a delicious turkey dinner. The rest of our time has been spent napping, snacking, reading, playing wii, putting the dogs out, bringing the dogs in, shooing the cats off the counters, snacking some more, reading another book, and of course, napping. I may soon get motivated enough to take the dogs for a walk.
