This is what it looked like around 8:30 am on Christmas Eve 2008, looking from the front door of the church towards our house. It was foggy and raining, and at this time the parking lot was a sheet of ice. It ended up getting to around 45 F, melting the ice, but then turned colder again.
And this is what my office looks like on Christmas Eve. I took the chair out so you could see. I wish I could say it was messy like this because I was so busy with Christmas stuff, but even though I have been busy, it kinda looks like this most of the time. I need to do something about that. Maybe that will be an '09 resolution.
This is the lovely Lady Jane playing the piano at our Christmas Eve service. It was a nice night. Probably had 80 or so there. Lots of guests. I only had 8 communion cups left over, so I cut that pretty close. We sang 2 carols, read the Christmas story from Luke 2, Drew did a solo, I read Paul Harvey's story about the geese, we had communion, got in a circle and lit our candles, and sang Silent Night.
