Autumn woke us all up early, and Santa came, he didn't come see me, but he sure came to see Autumn, she must have been really good. We all got ready pretty fast for church and enjoyed a very nice Christmas service. These two guys sang a great rendition of "The Little Drummer Boy". We came home, Mama and Ray, Dena and Andy, and Sherry all had prepared another Christmas feast, chicken and dumplings were my favorite. Mama's chicken and dumplings. The day just seemed to fly by, as always I'm just starting to feel the most relaxed. We all unwrapped presents, I made videos for everyone of the kids, and Sherry's wedding, and it was awesome watching their faces as they watched. Especially the kids, they kept wanting to watch their video over and over. Then they fought for the camera afterwards, well not fought, but they kept jumping in front of each other wanting their picture taken. I think I've created camera hogs now. Andy looked at Eli and said you want him to make another Eli video don't you. Eli smiled big and said yes. Somehow I didn't get to say goodbye to Autumn, because while I was taking pictures of the boys, her mom came and got her. They said she cried because she didn't get to tell me goodbye. I sure love that little girl. I love them all. I left late and was so tired driving home. I thought of good memories made on the way home, and of the biggest birthday celebration. The celebration of Jesus' birth.
