We started with a Christmas Day service at 11:00 AM. We sang some Christmas carols, shared some stories of God’s blessings, and Pastor shared a Christmas message.
Back home, the women worked hard in the kitchen.
Jeffrey got Jeri’s saxophone out of the attic and worked at playing it.
Just before dinner, we took our family photo.
Joanna was helping Nicole get ready.

Jeri, Nicole, Sarah, Victoria, and Lizzie went to Eileen Bouma’s to wish her a Merry Christmas. Sarah and Victoria finally returned around 5:30 PM after which we could open presents.
Justin got a Cole Porter songbook for Christmas. Here he’s playing from it. Jeffrey sings along.
