It was an awesome Christmas. We slept in, had coffee, and then our friend E came over with her five year old daughter J. We had drawn names for Christmas stockings. I got my sister, and I made sure hers was full of extra good things after the horrible year she’s had. When E and J arrived, we all opened our stockings, then J opened her presents. We had a wonderful dinner with our brother’s homemade hard cider, followed by pie made from huckleberries they had picked in the summer. After dinner, our brother read out loud. It was wonderful.
