All of our children, except for Zach and Emily, made it home for Christmas. We even go snow for Christmas. One of our traditions is to see a movie together, which was “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” this year. Since Christmas Eve was on Sunday, we took in two worship services. The kids all went to First Baptist of Galesburg in the morning. Cheryl and I worshipped at Raritan Baptist, since I am their interim minister. We joined each other for lunch at Peaches in Burlington, IA. We had to make a stop at Snake Alley to show Felipe, who is a foreing exchange student staying at the Komenda’s, the crookedest street in the world according to Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Christmas Morning we opened presents. I made sure we had cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The menu for Christmas Dinner was Ribs, French Fries, and all the sides. The games of choice this year were Catch Phrase and Dudo, a dice game Felipe brought from Chile.
