Merry Christmas!

We enjoyed Christmas as a family. All of us children awoke to the trumpet playing, "O Come All Ye Faithful." We opened our doors only to find that we had to burst through hung paper, as though the whole house was presented to us as a gift. It was! The stockings were brimming with gifts and the lit Christmas tree had been bestowed with a great assortment of wrapped presents.

Our morning together began with a gospel reading followed by a fun session of gift-opening. The afternoon brought us a visit from Isaac's childhood friend, Patrick. Clarence Knapp and Cousins Trip and Sally joined us for a hearty Christmas dinner with a main course of buffalo steak.
