Christmas eve. Time of preparations for the birth of Christ.
I have today through Monday off. Nice!
Poor George has to work today and Monday, so I'll get some quiet time.
This Christmas is a quiet one for me. My son, Austin, who
normally is here for the holiday, now lives in Colorado and
is spending Christmas with a new family.
George's two children have their own extended families
to be with. They will be coming over on Sunday to spend
some time with us.
I decided not to put any decorations up this year.
None outside, none inside.
We put our packages on the hearth.
Hmm, I don't see any from George...:-)
Tonight, we will go to our church's Christmas eve service.
I always enjoy it, we end it singing Silent Night holding candles.
Our choir does special music for the half hour before the service...
I'm singing in a quartet a song with Silent Night interspersed within.
Before church tonight, it's been a long tradition in my family
to go out and eat Chinese buffet.
I can't wait!!
George and I want to wish all our friends and family
a very Merry Christmas!!
