It was late afternoon when we heard their car in our driveway.
Our family was here!
Oh, how we enjoyed the hugs, smiles,
and good conversation.
They were all weary from their travels...
and fun filled weekend in Minneapolis.
So, we didn't make it a late night.
Our dinner of lasagna, salad greens and bread was simple,
but I didn't want to be in the kitchen cooking....
I wanted to be right here at the table with our family,
enjoying this beginning to a very special Christmas.
