Not feeling to dandy.
Got a bit of a cold.
But got the turkey in the oven.
Considered going back to bed,
but decided I had other things that needed to be done.
Gillams coming over for lunch.
I cooked the turkey, made mashed potatoes, corn and rolls. Sam did everything else.
The food was awesome, just as it was for Thanksgiving.
In fact, Kevin declared it better than Thanksgiving.
Here are several photos! It's just so hard to pick only a few.

Here is the link to Sam's blog with more photos..
Zion put out treats for Santa and the Magic Key, just in case Santa came while we were at church.
(He did that one time in San Diego while we were at Christmas Eve service).
|The Magic Key from Tia Maria a few years ago.|
|Zion put a post-it note on this candy cane for Santa over a month ago-so no one would eat it before Christmas.|
Isaac and Zion, Maddy and Ellie were in the church Christmas Eve program called a GREAT LIGHT.
|Isaac had a reading from Isaiah|
|the kids heard the Christmas story first person from "Grandma Mary"|
After church, we opened all the gifts from each other and those from the grandmas in the states.
|Zion loves Cam Newton, thanks Mamo Duke!|
|we are seeing a theme here.....and we like it!|
|Michael is not much for my constant photo taking|
|THANK YOU GILLAMS! I know that my coffee will taste better in this cup!|
