Well it's the day after Christmas and I am back at work. That alone is a Blessing as many people are out of work due to layoffs. We had a wonderful Christmas at our house and it was filled with Peace and Joy. (Unlike the woman who got fired from Lowes for wearing a Christmas lapel pin. More on that in my next post)
I had Christmas Eve off too and we celebrated in the traditional southern fashion. We went fishing. The weather was great and we were totally ready for Christmas so we decided to take the boat out to do a little fishing. Unfortunately, we had boat trouble because the motor didn't want to shift into gear but we were still at the boat landing so we simply reloaded the boat onto the trailer and headed back home to get our smaller boat. It ran a little rough but we did make it to our "Hot spot".
We fished for about an hour and a half and managed to catch 5 fish. They were all "Sheephead" and the biggest one was right at 7 lbs. Looks like the family will be eating fish this weekend. Everyone caught at least one fish and my oldest son caught the biggest one. After we returned home, we cooked up some oysters that were left over from out office Christmas party and they were great. After we finished eating the oysters, we got cleaned up and headed out to church for the Christmas Eve service.
The service was outstanding and it ended with the singing of Silent Night where the only light in the room was from the hundreds of candles. After that we headed home and all went to bed so that we could get up early.
Surprise surprise, everyone slept until 7. We had a wonderful Christmas and everyone got lots of presents. I made ham and cheese omelets for everyone and then we simply enjoyed the day. I fixed a ham for lunch and the weather was so nice that we ate out on the deck. How's that for Christmas weather? I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas.
Have a great day,
