Christmas Eve

Christmas just isn't Christmas without snow. We tried our best to get into the Christmas spirit but when you walk the dog in a light jacket, the lights inside are not twinkeling.

We put up a little tree this year, ever thankful for the space to allow such fun, gotten from road-side-stand about three blocks from our building. After Thanksgiving we leashed up the dog and headed out. It was a funny walk back with Regis scared of the 'thing' nestled on Scott's head and shoulders.

On Christmas Eve Day we baked a ham, made home-made cheesy scalloped potatoes, buttermilk biscuts and green beans. It was fantastic; we are leftover all weekend.

This Christmas I made sure we had tickets to the National Cathedral's Christmas Eve service. (They must be reserved online around the begingin of November!) The service was a tad too long for my United Methodist soul. One can only sing so many verses of Silent Night.
