Post Christmas

Christmas morning breakfast at the Mullauer's

Christmas is over and I am relishing in the calm.  We had a very nice Christmas beside the fact that I was sick.  I spent most of the day in bed.  Not the way I wanted to spend Christmas.  I had the week off work... part of me was glad that I had the week off so I didn't have to worry about trying to work when I didn't feel good.  But then on the other hand I didn't like having my time off being spent sick. 

On a more cheerful note Santa was very good to all of us.  Craig and the kids gave me a small digital camcorder.  I still need to learn how to use it. Look for future videos on my blog! And of course I received some gifts for my feathered friends.  I got a new oriole feeder that holds jelly.  I can't wait for the return of my orioles this next summer!  My Mom gave me a few new outfits.... she knows that I never buy myself clothes.  Caleb, Jordan and Craig were all spoiled as well.    

We had a beautiful candlelight service at church Christmas Eve.  We start at 11:00 and end at midnight with the large bell ringing outside for all of the town to hear as we stand in complete darkness except for our candles, singing Silent Night.  It's so beautiful.

Yep, I still like the dark Silent Night with candles (but we do it in the sanctuary). It's a highlight of Christmas eve.

Jessica, Sorry to hear that you were sick. Hope you feel better. This crazy weather is enough to make anyone sick!!!! Take care of yourself.

Love your Christmas picture.. Big Group!!!!

Your Christmas Eve service is similar to ours. I love singing silent Night at the stroke of midnight with all of the candles lit. Then we leave the sanctuary in silence... Goose Bumps!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Jessica - so sorry to hear you were sick too! I hope you get better soon. Can't wait to see what you'll record w/ your camcorder - hopefully some of the birdies!

It's no fun to be sick at Christmas time. Feel better! I love the picture of your pretty dining room, all decked out for Christmas breakfast.
