Our families came together, at least the ones who could make it, and we all had a wonderful time. First Steven was off to El Paso with friends for Christmas, so we had a early Christmas with him. Then Michelle and Jeremy came the week before, as they have Christmas with Jeremy’s family this year (we alternate), so we had a early mini-Christmas with them. So finally on Christmas day, we had our “real” Christmas with the rest of the family. No snow, that came two days later, but it was a good time anyway. We started with the reading of Luke 2, opened presents, and ate a wonderful dinner. An afternoon of games, and then we all went home right before the ice arrived. No it will takes weeks to take off the extra weight from Thanksgiving and Christmmas dinners, snacks, and leftovers.
