I often miss all my kids being together each week.
They all have their own adult (and family) lives now.
|everyone look at grandma ...|
One of my daughter's and her family came over.
|cell phones may be grainy but they do capture moments of time|
We kept Family Home Evening simple. We put a nativity puzzle together (500 piece) while Papa read the account of the Savior's birth from the scriptures and later we ate some goodies - oh yeah, and of course, some enjoyed a quick game of chess ... Papa you weren't kibitzing surely ...
We discovered that our Christmas decorations have 32 angels, 35 baby Jesus', and 98 birds including a partridge in the 'pear tree'.
Those that counted closest got first choice on the goodies.
My daughter won the angels - she counted 38 - she included her 6 kids! I should have won that one - I would have added her!
Sunday evening super fine snow powder flocked our lawn.
This morning I have evidence that I did not just dream a wonderful dream. Their footprints remain on the flocked lawn and there is a finished puzzle on the table - those angels are not only smart - they are fast!
