It Was A Busy Sunday

Yesterday morning we enjoyed another great breakfast before heading off to church.  My brother-in-law pastors the church I grew up in and the choir was performing their Christmas cantata.  It was good to see all the folks I grew up with—people I’ve known all my life, and we certainly enjoyed the music. 

Back home to Danny and Ann’s where guess what—we ate again!  Then it was back to church for a special kind of celebration.  When I was growing up my Uncle Frank Lee was a large part of life at home and at church.  He loved the young people, drove the bus, took us to church camp and different activities.  His wife, Valeta, of 63 years recently died and Uncle Frank Lee will celebrate his 85th birthday December 31.  His daughter and friends at the church decided to plan a surprise birthday celebration for him yesterday.  I’m glad they celebrated a week early so we could be there.  The party was a complete surprise to Uncle Frank Lee--IMG_5657

We had time for a good walk when we got home after the party—Ann took us out through the pine forest making Elizabeth and me think we should be dropping bread crumbs! 

Remember I said it was a busy day—after the walk we were back to church again—the children were performing!  They were precious—G*** really enjoyed participating in the Little Drummer Boy song, stopping his foot for the chorus.  IMG_5672IMG_5674

Early to bed for this girl—it was one busy day!  This morning my sister Ann was hard at work in the kitchen making peanut brittle when I got up.  Michael and Danny are off to Little Rock this morning to purchase a gift I forgot—don’t I have a good husband!!  Annie is cooking and I’m visiting Mom and Chuck.  Thank goodness for Chuck and his wifi!!
