Merry Christmas

The first Christmas gift received today was the joy of sleeping in. We celebrated at the Midnight Mass, so the extra sleep was welcome and appreciated. I am sure the rest of the day will entail good food, good drink, and even an extra nap or two. I hope your day is as wonderful.

I wish you all a joyful and holy Christmas. May the joy of the season remain with you all year long.
