I was praying for The Surprise of Unfolding. What a beautiful blog title. She is not infertile, but a busy wife and Mom, that in itself was a lesson.
Christmas turned out to be pretty fun. It was a bit stressful at times - while I love my Auntie dearly, she can be a bit particular and needs to have things 'just so', which can be trying. In the end it was a lovely day, though. We had two guests for dinner - a friend my Aunt had just met who was here from Switzerland and did not have anyone to share Christmas with, and a guy from my choir who also didn't have anyone to have to share Christmas dinner with. I'm so glad we had the extra guests, it made it even more festive. And I loved hearing about Switzerland! (I am part Swiss)
It was a super fun meal, if a bit late (I should put the turkey in an hour earlier than it says on the package! augh!) - but man, what a lot of cleanup! There is a reason we only use the good dishes once or twice a year. :)
I just want to REST today (did not sleep well last night), but we're having more friends over this evening - yikes! It will be nice to see them though. And hopefully we'll go out for dinner, and then maybe beg off.
