Merry Christmas!! We hope you and your family enjoyed a very Merry Christmas together! We did for the most part, due to sickness that plagued some of our family members for most of the week of Christmas. But, we were thankful to have Grandmommie and Poppie here with us and they did a great job of spoiling Sadie Mac! I think she had 4 stockings, just for her! We all enjoyed time together in the morning and then headed over to a friends house for lunch. We enjoyed HAM(!!!!) along with all the sides of a usual Christmas dinner. Everyone chipped in much like Thanksgiving and we made it a meal fit for kings and queens. The kids exchanged gifts and the adults played "Dirty Santa" where you can steal gifts. It was great! We missed the snow that was falling back in the States along with family and friends there. But, what a gift to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with both family from the States and family found overseas!! We love you all!
