A huge wet weather system moved in over the Christmas weekend and just about inundated us. Guess we should feel fortunate because in other sections of our country there was flooding and in the northern quadrant blizzard conditions.

Christmas morning we drove the 12 minutes over to Cathy's home to share a brunch and the opening of presents, something we have done since we moved to Richmond to be near them. Jimmie and Sharon Miles, Jeff's parents have shared this traditional time with us also.
Later the older Miles left to prepare for a trip to Florida and Lib and I returned home for a short time to gather up some deviled eggs Lib had made for the evening meal. She had also made a pound cake, candy, and an apple pie. Cathy had prepared a filling Christmas supper of chicken breasts in sauce, green beans, and mashed potatoes. She also made a pumpkin pie. There was no reason anyone should leave the table hungry.
We finished the evening by playing Christmas carols on our instruments. Devin our grandson played 1st violin, I played 2nd, Cathy played cello, and Jeff played guitar. That was our Christmas.
