We went to mass this morning. I always enjoy Christmas mass because of the songs and the opportunity to reflect upon Christmas past. This year was a first for us. None of the kids are here so it is just us. That was how it all started anyway. We took pictures as we always do and then talked to the boys on the phone. We'll have Christmas dinner with our friend Pat and just hang out all day and enjoy some much needed down time. We head to Georgia early Sunday morning to see the boys.
