Christmas day 2008

It is a cold rainy christmas morning here in southern California. Dan lit the fire place in the front room and we enjoyed Christmas music, a crackling fire, candles and coffee as we read about Mary's part in the Birth story. Wonderful!

This year I made up the rein deer from fallen palm fronds that litter the streets with the fall storms and Hollie was checking them out. You can see Dan's 5 grandchildren pictured on our tree and we are so thankful for a growning happy healthy family. Then is a photo of Julia and Stephanie opening their gifts before a wonderful dinner at Rick and Suzanne's home.
