Christmas Crash & True Celebration

You know how you feel after the season of rushing around before Christmas day, shopping, cooking, baking, wrapping, crafting, and so on? Then Christmas day arrives and all the hard work and determination you put into making the right gift and setting out all the pretty decorations and prepping a big breakfast for our loved ones is over in just a few, short hours.

This is my dog, Pokey, expressing his own exhaustion from the excitement of the morning.

He is perfectly reflecting my own thoughts at that moment, "Can we go back to bed now?"I thought I would also add on the picture from our New Year's Eve buffet spread. Several families from our church got together for a game night and thought we might be hungry! I couldn't get an angle to picture the whole buffet - this is half of it. Do all church families eat like Baptists do? It seems every time we get together, we eat!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas time and Happy New Year celebrations.
I missed Show and Tell several weeks in a row - it's good to be back! See Mary for more.

Happy New Year ! Yes I am still waiting for the slow down. lol Maybe for the month of January will slow down or me. Well not. I am going to be starting to write my ebook cookbook for fund raising to go on a short missions trip to Vanauatu in the S. Pacific. I pray blessings on your 2009.

Blessings in Him<><

This reminds me of a joke I heard years ago. "How do Baptists spell 'fellowship?' F, O, O, D."

But really, I do think that all church families are pretty much the same. Our little non-denominational house church always has mountains of food when we have a potluck.

I think that loving to eat is cross-demoninational!

I know how you feel. I missed S&T today because I'm recovering from the flu. That little pup of yours is adorable!
