Yesterday our family took a day trip to Benny and EJ's house to celebrate Christmas. We left at 8:30 A.M., drove 2.5 hours, and returned home by 5 P.M. We were blessed to spend the day with 13 family and friends, including Grandma Barbara, Gran and Granddaddy, Uncle Kenny, cousin Brandi, EJ's dad, and our family friend Ms. Bernice.
Benny, EJ, and Barbara prepared a delicious lunch that included prime rib, a salad bar, potatoes, and stuffing. For dessert, we sampled pecan pie and Italian rum cake.
After lunch, we gathered in the living room, where we exchanged gifts as a symbol of our love and appreciation for one another.
It was a good day filled with fun, food, and fellowship!
