Merry Christmas!

DH and I are enjoying a nice quiet Christmas at home for the first time in our 6 years married. Last night we attending a Christmas Eve service at Northside UMC. The music was really good and we enjoyed singing all of the Christmas carols. I always enjoy flipping to the front of the United Methodist Hymnal and reading John Wesley's Rules of Singing. We sat around some good singers, and some people who weren't singing at all. DH and I were trying to make up for some of the slack. I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the service when we wished those around us "Merry Christmas," that the woman in front of us turned and said to us, "We really enjoyed your singing." Ah, more people should follow John Wesley's rules!

We're working on a yummy dinner for two - grilled ribeye steaks, green beans, and sticky rice with mushrooms. I think we'll be having vanilla ice cream with apple bundles and cinnamon sugar cookies for dessert. I hope everyone out there is having a Merry Christmas!
