Good morning Ladies !! It is hard to believe but we have now made it to Christmas eve. The time has gone so fast. This is my favorite holiday of the year as it welcomes Jesus to the world ! The weather is sooo cold ! It is minus 5f but the wind makes it feel like minus 26 f ! Or in Celsius it is minus 21 with windchill at minus 32c ! It has been similar temps to this for the past few days. A slight warm up is on the way though.
Last Saturday was spent getting some last minute items before Christmas. The stores were pretty quiet as there was a Minnesota Vikings game on in the afternoon, so a lot of locals stayed in , and also to avoid the cold ! It was nice for me though to get around ! We watched some Christmas movies that night. Sunday was the 4ht Sunday of Advent and the last candle was lit We then watched the world cup final and what turned out to be an exciting game and ending Argentina won the cup . The work week began Monday but it was broken up a bit. The kids finished school on Wednesday until the new year. I had Thursday off work as I had to use up my vacation days before the calendar year ends . It was nice getting the day to get things done . On Friday we worked until noon and then had our work Christmas party! It was a lovely get together with some spouses also showing up. There was a cornhole/ beanbags tournament that we all played in. We were divided up in teams at random. I was drawn with one of the guys and he helped us win the first game but then we lost the next 2 to be eliminated !!! Oh well. It was all fun . We got to chat with people we dont always get to. I left at 3’30pm and decided to get a new winter coat. It has been on my to do list for a little while now.
We are going out to eat this morning for breakfast . Then there are just a few items to take care of and we will be all ready for the big day tomorrow. We are going to my in-laws around 9am in the morning. This afternoon we are going to 4pm mass (church) at our local church.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
