On Christmas Day, Utah’s Christmas Eve, we talked to 6 of our kids and my sweet parents and sister. Then our friend Sue Collins invited us to have a picnic with their family on the beach in Tairua. We garden at her farm every Friday and were thrilled to get to meet her extended family. Her husband Derek resides in a care center in Tairua but got to be at the beach with us for the day.
They also invited us to go to their Anglican Christmas service with them but we had family phone calls and couldn’t make it. After the beach, we made a stop back at the Ribets to see what Santa left the kids and have a few more treats.
We’ve had a joyous, delightful day to celebrate the anniversary of our Savior’s birth
