Our meal is at least Mediterranean and homemade grape juice is served.
The handsome fellow sitting next to Emily is her friend, Clint Jarvis from Idaho.
He had a way of making Kylie smile!

The story of Christ's birth is retold in a family pageant.
And it came to pass... that there went out a decree... And Joseph went...into Judea...with Mary.
And she brought forth her firstborn son... and laid him in a manger; because there was no room in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them... and they were sore afraid.
"Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy."
(Yes, we got the giggles!)
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men."
