We had a very relaxing day yesterday. We needed it! We slept in and once we woke up Larry started making the ham, and I began making sweet rolls and then we woke the kids up, had breakfast and started opening gifts. A few hours later we started on the rest of Christmas dinner. I enjoy taking photos with my camera as I go along throughout my day, so here are some I took while we were cooking...
|Jordan just loves my sweet potato casserole...says it wouldn't be Christmas or Thanksgiving without it!|
|Waiting for my homemade yeast rolls to rise...|
|The spices of the season...|
|Larry prepares his cherry glazed ham...it's THE best. Can you tell we were glad to have the day off from Weight Watchers...just for the day?|
|I love setting a nice table...|
|...and lighting the candles...|
I was very blessed to share Christmas with my family and enjoy the gifts. One thought I did have yesterday as everyone was asking me (on the phone or online) "Did you have a good Christmas?" was the fact that really Christmas is always good for a believer. When we keep our focus on Jesus we will never, ever, have a bad Christmas!
