We had Ray's family over last night for dinner and celebrate Christmas. For a while we weren't sure if it was even going to happen. People kept cancelling out with conflicts. In the end, everyone who could make it had a great time. We had supper with chicken and noodles, vegetable soup and hoagie sandwiches. Donna provided cake and sugar cookies for dessert. Too much was eaten by every one.
Ray had the kids so excited about opening their gifts that they could barely sit down. He even got them to cooperate in putting toys away first. It felt so good to spend time with family and enjoy the Christmas season.
