What a fun week

Another week has gone by, and oh what a week that was! Last Sunday, Dec. 23, was the Christmas Program at church. The Ward Choir sang (under the direction of Noelle), and did very well. I love Christmas music. It’s my favorite. That afternoon we had dinner at Jeff’s grandparents, and we celebrated my birthday (a day early).

On Monday, my real birthday, we did a bunch of Christmas Eve things. The Gálvez’s brought me birthday breakfast. It was yummy. For lunch we went to the Jumbo Buffet. Nothing like Chinese food to get me into the Christmas Spirit! Then we went to the hospital in LaGrange and did some Christmas Caroling. Lastly we went to Jeff’s grandparents house and read the Nativity Story from Luke chapter 2. Rachel had the leading role as baby Jesus. She played the part with a sensitivity and understanding that you don’t always get from a 3 month old. She is very talented!

Next we had a gift exchange game for all the family. We got a chocolate milk maker and a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. (We had kind of a chocolate theme.)

Tuesday was Christmas (of course). We got up late and opened our presents from Santa Claus. He sure is a jolly good fellow! Then we went over to Jeff’s parents’ house where we had a delicious breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit smoothie, and I can’t remember everything else. But it was great and I was very full afterwards. Then we opened presents (again). Finally we just hung out and relaxed for the rest of the day. We had a lot of fun with Jeff’s family.

The rest of the week was spent trying to recover from the previous month. It has all been very nice. Now there’s just one more year before Christmas!
