This year, the bulk of the clan was not in Abilene, including Cindy, who is in Africa for a month. In fact, there was only 12 of us - 7 adults and 5 kids who were in town.
So, Judith invited some people from her church etc, who were also having "lonely" Christmases, to the shindig...
... and we invited Xia Yu and her parents, and the Foxes were there as well.
So, really, it was a little "different" this year, seeing all these unfamiliar faces at our Christmas lunch,
but I didn't get to "interact" very much, but spent my time at the workroom next door, doing crafts and drawing and whatnot with the boys.
All in all, we had a good Christmas, AND I still have a bunch of things to post, that happened BEFORE as well as on Christmas Day. ... Like Christmas MORNING!!
and so, as usual,
to be continued. :)
