We hope you’ll enjoy these recipes!  As for our Christmas celebrations, we will be getting together at Kim’s

Mom’s house (Patsy) on Sunday evening.  Patricia is playing the accompaniment music for the Christmas Eve Service at church, led by all the children, and on Christmas day we are planning to go for a ride in the mountains!  We are really looking forward to time with our families, and celebrating all that Christmas means to us!

Sending you the warmest of wishes and childlike celebration!

Merry Christmas!
