Christmas Eve we went to Debi’s for our traditional supper of fresh baked bread, cheese, and fruit. It was not an evening of hymns and reflection with quiet discussion of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus and our Savior's mission, but Esther could tell me why we were eating this particular meal and we did read Luke 2.
We enjoyed visiting. When it was time for the children to go to bed, there was a general migration to the Hinds home for some kind of fun. Joseph and I came home to finish up our last bit of wrapping and help Santa with his deliveries. His reindeer had just pulled away when David, Teresa and Benjamin came home.
David and Teresa scored. Santa gave them each a stocking for being my children in my house and another stocking for being married to each other. The DT elves also added to the candy that the home elves put in our stockings.
