BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD !
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND BLESSINGS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU !
What a wonderful Christmas week we have had in the Denny home ! We have been busy wrapping presents, preparing food and helping the kids get ready for Jesus' birthday today ! We have some traditions in our home that have kept the kids in the spirit of Christmas this week ...... Taylor made Potato Latkes & Kielbasa - a Hungarian / Polish dish that we all love to have on Christmas Eve -- we went to church yesterday - both services were candlelight so we attended the earlier one at 3:30 pm so the kids could have some down time after church during dinner and desert time, etc. We made sugar cookies and frosted them this week, we bought Hickory Farms meats and cheeses, we liked giving out cookie trays to a few of our neighbors and most of all we loved singing "Happy Birthday Jesus" - songs learned at Sunday School and performed last weekend. Briana sang in the choir at Christmas Service - Taylor enjoyed a service project outing with the girl scouts and the little ones had holiday parties last week before break. Briana made pancake puffs with sausage this morning for breakfast and we enjoyed tracking santa all day yesterday curtosy of norad -- we even saw him fly over Colorado Springs ! Everyone recieved presents they wanted - what an abundance we have been blessed with this year - but most of all, we have our health, each other and Jesus ! We love each of you and wish you and yours the best holiday season !
