Merry Christmas

We are blessed to have my father-in-law visiting us this Christmas. So on Christmas Eve, we are ready to count the holiday blessings:
  1. Dinner last night with my husband's cousin, his wife and children, and her parents
  2. Safe passage to the Mall of America this morning (we passed 4 accidents after our latest snowstorm)
  3. A wonderful family luncheon at our favorite restaurant, Three Squares
  4. Completed shopping and almost completed wrapping
  5. Cookie fixins ready to be baked (if small hands don't sneak all the M and M's first)
  6. Christmas ham ready to be baked
  7. Norad Santa ready for viewing
  8. Christmas Eve services ready to be attended and sung at (and with luck, a holiday photo ready for taking in front of the big tree there)
  9. Christmas breakfast in the fridge ready for baking
  10. A warm house, enough food, loving family and friends, safe lives, jobs, good memories, and the love of Christ.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
