On Saturday afternoon we went to the movie theater to see, "The Nativity Story", a film about the birth of Jesus. Although the storyline deviated a little bit from the Biblical account, the cinematography and acting were outstanding. Our two older kids enjoyed it and because they are so familiar with the Biblical account, they told us the parts that were different.
On Sunday after we returned from the Rams football game we were surprised at the food and gifts brought to our house by a "secret santa". There was a lot of stuff! Coupled with gifts from ourselves and other family members, our children were abundantly blessed (spoiled rotten) this year.
We were blessed by the people that volunteered to help us buy presents and wrap them, since we did not have time to do these things ourselves. A special thanks to Kim V. and April C. Also, a very special thank you to our secret santa and her helpers. It was fun to watch the kids open each present.
Gram, Poppy, and Aunt Dee Dee came over this morning for a delicious, healthy brunch. It was probably the healthiest Christmas meal we have ever had. Also, Kate was blessed by a high school friend who dropped by and gave her 32 envelopes, each with a Scripture verse written on the outside and parking money for each day she travels down to Barnes for treatment.
God bless you all this wonderful Christmas day.
Dave & Kate
