Christmas morning I slept in. This would not have been a thought in my mind when I was younger. The earlier the better ha ha. My two sister and I would spring out of bed at 6:00 a.m. or earlier. My first thought when I woke up was that I need to slip into my living room and stuff the goodies my sister and I bought into my parents stockings. My dad received chocolate covered raisins, a moon pie, and other goodies. My mom's stocking was filled with Almond Joys, Reese's cups, and more. In between their stockings, I put a six pack of glass bottled Old Town RootBeer Company root beer for them to share. Old Town RootBeer Company is located in San Diego, CA's Old Town. My family and I came across this store when vacationed in San Diego a few summers ago. This was the best root beer I have tasted. It is very smooth. You don't have the carbonation that hits you first like most root beers but the delicious flavor. We thought that we would not have the opportunity to taste it again until our next visit to San Diego but I was very surprised when I walked into World Market and in the drink section was Old Town RootBeer Comany's root beer.
My great grandpa is still in the hospital and the diagnosis right now is that he has a bad strain of the flu. He was running a very high fever of over 103. He is still having test done one of the things is to check for brain damage that could have occurred from the high fever he experienced. Please keep him in your prayers.
Sunday: Today is the Lord's day let us rejoice and be glad in it.
I did not get to prepare Christmas dinner for my family yesterday. I have a sore throat this morning which I think I acquired in the hospital waiting area. My parents went back up to the hospital to check on my grandpa so it doesn't look like I will be preparing the meal today either. The closest thing to cooking turkey today will be the other white meat- chicken. I prepared homemade chicken noodle soup.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. The Lord has blessed my family this year and I hope everyone takes the time to thank the Lord for the greatest gift he has given us which is his Son- Jesus.
