On Christmas Eve we were lucky to have Miss Carol come over for dinner. It was our first Christmas away from my sisters in Colorado, and it was nice having company to fill the void. We heard Verlene and Paul made prime rib for Barbara and her family! We had to settle for ham and a really good lava cake for dessert. We read the Christmas story and sang songs in the appropriate places. We didn't act out the nativity. I guess we'll have to wait for grandchildren before we dust off the donkey costume again!
