It SNOWED on Christmas morning!

God has blessed me extra-specially today!

Round One:  When I went out for a short walk, I noticed a few flurries in the air.  Yes, those would be snow flurries – on Christmas day!  Nothing was sticking, and you had to look closely to see them, but it really was snowing.

Round Two:  All four kids got up and opened their stocking together this morning.  It was precious to me.  Andrew really liked his multi-color pen.

Round Three:  We got a picture of all seven of us in front of the Christmas tree, pre-demolition.  Sweet.

Round Four:  Our traditional Christmas breakfast was altered slighty (and probably improved significantly) by the substitution of crumb cake for canned cinnamon rolls.  Breakfast casserole and fresh pineapple rounded out our menu.  Ruth said the meal was delicious.  = )

Round Five:  We were treated to a very creative and seriously funny Ozark Mountain re-enactment of the Christmas story in which Katie was not the donkey.  The cast of characters included the angel Gabriel, Mary, Joseph, the innkeeper, his wife, a shepherd, his fairly opinionated sheep, two wise women, and King Herod.  The llama was also featured in a supporting role (to Mary).  Suffice it to say that a group of wise-cracking mimes can pull together a grand and memorable drama in a matter of minutes.

Round Six:  We thanked God for many aspects of his great goodness to us over the past year.

Round Seven:  Gifts were opened, and it was good.  Moreover, while gifts were being opened, snow continued.  There still wasn’t anything sticking, but it was definitely real snow, heavier than flurries.  What could be nicer than a roaring fire, a lovely tree, gifts to share, the whole family together, and SNOW on Christmas morning?

God has blessed me extra-specially today!
