Got home very late last night. Rob is already off this morning with the four older kids to Adoration. I reminded them as they walked out the door to give thanks for a blessed Christmas, as well as for all their presents.
And it was a very blessed Christmas. We got to spend time with most of our family. A few couldn't make it in town, but they were there in spirit.
I'd like to thank my sister Eileen for her hospitality. It takes quite the hostess to house a family of nine for a full week and do it with such grace. Whenever we stay with Eileen, which is quite often, we feel as comfortable as we do in our own home.
Thanks also to my sister-in-law Peggy who hosted the Wittmann celebration on Christmas Eve. The food and everything was great!
Thanks to Aunt Kay, who fed the weary travelers as we passed through Indianapolis on the way home. We stopped for a minute to say "hi" and she couldn't let us leave without first treating us to lunch and a lovely visit. If there's one thing you can say about my family it's that they're a hospitable bunch -- they treat you as though Jesus Himself was at the door.
It was a very blessed Christmas indeed, and I look forward to the New Year.
