I have really enjoyed this holiday season.  I didn't do Thanksgiving dinner here, so we went to Lori's home for dinner.  It was wonderful!  She asked me to make the stuffing and everyone else contributed to the meal too.  In the afternoon we went home and took a nap.  We went to Rose Park to share a dinner with Donna's family.  It was very interesting and delicious.
Christmas was especially satisfying this year.  We got neighbor gifts done early, cards mailed out early, decorations done early, and gifts wrapped early.  It was wonderful!  We enjoyed going to concerts with our grandchildren performing, family parties, parties with friends, watching Christmas movies and getting some relaxation time.  I am so blessed!  I am truly thankful for my family and friends that make this season so special.  I am so thankful for the birth of our Savior and his willingness to die for me.  That is the greatest gift of all.
