Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Holy Moses did this month fly by. This year too. As is the Armstrong tradition we will go to church tomorrow. We were lucky enough to receive an invite from the Jones’ to come over after church, so we will go. It should be like Thanksgiving, according to Curt. I had a lot of fun on Thanksgiving. I’m a game person, and they are a game family. What a fit we are.
We will also watch the Mr. Bean Christmas episode, and The Toy That Saved Christmas. Geoff is anticipating us waking up at 6am Christmas morning to open presents, but we’ll see. Geoff’s family has a tradition of cinnamon rolls Christmas morning, so that is a certainty in our morning. And Geoff is making lasagna for dinner on the 25th. We went to Whole Foods to buy some italian sausage & cheese for the dinner. Yummy.
I hope you all have a blessed holiday season. We will be online Christmas morning if you want to IM us. I’ll close with a quote from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Charlie Brown: (shouting in desperation) Isn’t there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?
Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you. Lights, please. (A spotlight shines on Linus.) “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men'”. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
