Our first course was homemade doughnuts and coffee. Yummy! It is time consuming to make doughnuts, but boy are they good! :)

Breakfast consisted of Quiche Lorraine, lamb sausage, fruit salad, and sparkling orange juice. While we ate, and throughout the rest of the day, we listened to Handel's "Messiah". It is an incredible oratorio about our Lord. The rest of the afternoon was filled with a nap, a vigorous game of hockey, dinner, and a Christmas movie.
|Dinner - Leg of lamb, cheesy potatoes, and salad. While we ate, Mike read the Christmas story from the Bible and other passages.|

All day long, we watched Princess on our surveillance camera. She was due that day. We could see that she was working on delivering puppies, but it is a long process. As we watched the clock, we hoped that she would have them on Christmas day, but at midnight, we had to give up that hope. But the next day... :)
