Christmas Celebration

As usual, our Christmas was non-traditional and full of fond memories.  On Christmas Eve, we enjoyed a delicious meal with neighbors and then played Christmas music on ukes, guitars, and a mando.  We stayed up super late and went to the 10:30 p.m. church service with our friend, Debi.  So glad we went!  The service was fantastic with a guest sax player, singer, handbell choir, and entertaining message from the pastor.  I had to call my mother the next day and tell her about their communion, which offered gluten-free bread.  My, how times have changed in church.

I switched shifts and worked on Christmas day until 1 p.m., so Emil enjoyed a delicious ramen soup lunch while I slaved away, selling ski lessons.  We opened a few gifts in the afternoon, and then friends came over to play games.

Our real Christmas meal was splurging (since we're uber poor) on breakfast the day after Christmas.

Emil opening gifts.  Each gift had a clue.
All in all, it was a nice Christmas, even if a little disjointed.  Looking forward to 2014!
