We had a great, busy Christmas season. We decorated right after Thanksgiving and enjoyed our decorated home all month.
We had a wonderful Christmas party at church. I catered the event with the help of a friend. Santa came but Lissy was not about to sit on his lap. Everyone entertained by singing karaoke.
We spent Christmas eve at our great friends home and then we had them over for Christmas dinner. It is always a highlight to get together with the Ryvers.
