Larry's parents came over for our Christmas Eve dinner of Baby Back Ribs and Cheesy Potatoes. I realize that I have been full since Halloween and vow to make good changes this next year... giving me time of course to finish off the leftovers :)
Afterwards, Larry talked to us about angels and the Christmas Story, then we opened our traditional presents of a Christmas book and pajamas and settled in to watch our 2008 slide show of family memories. In looking back, it is easy to see that most of our favorite memories are found near home. We are missing Katie, Ransom & Conrad this year who went to Arizona, but as quiet as it is around here...there is no family I would rather share them with than Ransom's family.
