The presents have been opened and the kids are coming off their chocolate sugar rushes, so I thought that I would wish everyone a Merry Christmas before we all nap.
Last night we went to Christmas Eve service at Rez. I ended up staying for all three services to sing because we were very short-handed in the choir. When I came home we opened most of our presents to each other since Paul is working today. Paul and I stayed up to watch the Nativity Story movie which was really good.
Ethan joined us in bed at 2:15 this morning and had to bring his Diego matchbook cars that Laurin got him. Then Laurin and Laina woke us up at 6:15 to see what Santa had brought. Poor Ethan has had a scant Christmas so far since his presents did not come in the mail due to an ebayer's shipping mistake. Oh well, he is very satisfied with what he has gotten so far and will love his Thomas the Train stuff when it finally arrives.
We will get ready later and see Paul at the ambulance station and Shauna sometime today. Hope you are all having a good time wherever you are. Remember that we have all been given the greatest gift that could ever be given--Jesus.
I will leave you with my favorite line from the Nativity Story. During the scene one of the shepherds is looking at the baby Jesus and you can tell that he really wants to touch him. Mary says, "He is for all mankind."
