Christmas Day – Part 1

Monday, December 25

We woke up to a pretty snow flurry.

Diane gave us come granola

Josiah and Diane joined us in two games of Qwirkle

The guys were the winners.

We were invited to Jere and Kristen’s for lunch. The ham was done in their smoker – and was delicious.

The turkey was roasted in the oven and was also delicious.

While waiting for the meal to be ready, Mark and Diane had a bit of face-time on their cell phones.

Kristen and Jere usually get to see Jana (via cell phone) on Fridays – her day off from serving with Youth With a Mission – but since it was Christmas, she was at a team leaders home and had access to Wi-Fi. However, they were not able to make the connection until later in the day – and I think it was only by messaging. I guess the ocean was too wide that day. 🙂

The beautiful table setting.

I liked these pretty table decorations…

…then learned that they were more than decorations. They were for the sparkling cider.

Lunch will soon be ready

Our family in the area who didn’t have other Christmas plans: Cerwin, Diane, Kristen, Jere, Roy, Jesse, Deb, Lydia, Josiah, and Josh.

Ian and Jared had their own table.

More tomorrow night.
