I woke up at 0400 - which guaranteed plenty of time for some Christmas Morning solitude and reflection......
And plenty of time to get the traditional Cinnamon rolls going for breakfast. The big pan is the normal-though-healthier-cinnamon rolls. The bottom pan was made without dairy, eggs or sugar...... date honey and cinnamon...coconut cream....good - best when warm. LOL They are vegan but not Daniel Fast friendly....
The kids and Michael taught me Gin Rummy and I played with the remote "clicker" for my camera while we waited for the rolls to rise and then bake.

We are happy to be home and to have Krista with us today too. We opened Christmas Stockings and gifts from my parents.
The girls cracked me up - the same pose with a perfectly good chair in between them
We began our celebration reading and sharing from Luke 2
Stacia won the most excited award...a container full of dimes
I found THIS in my Christmas stocking....
Pearls - wow.
I had asked Krista what she usually had for lunch/dinner these days. She mentioned Cafe Yumm. I googled....and we made some Yumm sauce and had rice bowls for lunch.
We spent the afternoon putting puzzles together, visiting, playing games, going to Frozen...
Mom and Dad gave Michael the world's smallest puzzle - 234...look at how tiny the pieces are
Working on the tiny puzzle
Happy Birthday Jesus
We were happy to communicate with Josiah, Bre, both Grandmas, Siblings via Facebook and text messages. Michael enjoyed touching base via the phone with Mom G and John and Mary. We loved our family Skype with the two of the Texas Gherkins this afternoon.
Living all of life before the face of God...
