No images to send today... We remembered to get the camera in Sabinal and bring it to Beaumont, but forgot to bring it to family Christmas last night. So, I will be at the mercy of my Dad and sisters to provide me with images from last night! We had a good time, but it was bittersweet... We won't get to have nearly as many family get togethers like that with us so far away. :(
My sister has started the most wonderful tradition. Her and her girls bake a birthday cake for Jesus. Then, at our family Christmas on Christmas Eve, we all sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and cut Santa a piece of birthday cake! I thought that was such a great way to keep the little ones plugged into what Christmas is all about!
I did get a wonderful card and letter from an old friend that I met while "we" were in the Navy in Virginia. I haven't heard from her in 7 1/2 years! Renewed friendships... What a GREAT Christmas gift!
I hope that Santa brings you all exactly what you wanted. But I also hope that during this time with your friends and family that you take the time to stop and reflect what we are really celebrating: The gift of Christ our Lord.
