Whatever your religious persuasion, best wishes to all my friends. This has been a fun filled Christmas eve, with family gingerbread house decoration this afternoon. Cathleen took the kids to church for a late afternoon service, so I could get a start on present wrapping. For dinner we had our traditional chili dinner with homemade peppermint ice cream, hot fudge and crumbled candy cane on top. Now encouraging the children to get to bed, with limited success. Everyone is looking forward to Christmas morning!
