The Day After Christmas

We survived. We fed tons of people at church but this year it turned out to be mostly our church family. We expected so many more--so guess what? Today after church we'll be eating leftovers at the church.

Yesterday, I was up at 3:30 putting the turkey in the oven. And yes, I went back to bed. When I got up, I started in on everything else. I made big batches of dressing, green bean casserole, and candied yams. Because hubby had an eye doc's appointment, son and daughter-in-law helped me haul everyhting to the church. I'd sliced the turkey and put it in a big roaster. Other folks brought turkeys too, so we had plenty to eat.

What we didn't have was many off the streets despite hanging posters all over. When I finally gave up and came home, I know that we'd put together about 10 to-go dinners that were delivered to our folks living at the low-income place in town. (Seniors and disabled folks.)

I understand that today, after church, we're going to eat leftovers. Sounds good to me.

So, it's time I got things together to teach my kids at Sunday School.

Hope you all had a great Christmas.
