First, thank you for your prayers and love for Anna Marie and family. We hope to have another update soon.
We shared about Christmas Eve, and what our full, happy household was up to. Christmas Day is quieter with just the unmarried young adults and Dad and Mom.
After a relaxed morning, we ate breakfast mid-morning. It’s been the tradition for the guys to make it, and Jesse cooked us biscuits with sausage gravy. Dad and Mom ate their oatmeal with fruit.
The next order of business was to bake cookies for our Christmas police force. Throughout the month, Mom made cookie dough and froze the balls so we could pull them out and bake fresh on Christmas Day. Mom and Anna baked, and I wrapped them in individual plastic wrap, while Mary created a beautiful card. Then, we call the non-emergency number, and a police officer shows up to take the basket. It’s really a special way to give them a small “thank you” for their service.
After that, we opened gifts. We all love to find gifts that are practical and useful to the individual.
“For thy mercy is great above the heavens:
and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds” (Psalm 108:4).
