On the 8th Day of Christmas (+ Family, Rudolph, India, and Ghana!)

Okay, so this blogging every day thing is a lot harder than it looks.  By now I should have been on Day 10 of my Christmas songs.  Whoops.

I'm still posting all 12 songs.  Maybe I'll lump a couple together or continue to post a few days after Christmas.

Anyhoo, how's everyone's holiday time been so far?  Our has been pretty good. It started off with basketball Friday night, and then a Christmas shindig with my family Saturday night.

I didn't take as many pictures as I hoped, but I'm glad I got a few.  One thing I like about my family's Christmas gatherings is we don't do presents.  We just get together, eat, fellowship, sometimes play a few games with door prizes...but a big gift exchange?  Never.  And boy, do I love that.  

Speaking of gifts, I got an email about the shoe boxes we packed for Operation Christmas last month.  Our shoe boxes went to India and Ghana!  How cool is that?!

Here's a 45-second video that came with the email.  I love it.

Today's song is another one from the Temptations -- their version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. :-)

Speaking of Rudolph, M's daddy recently gave her a new little friend to love on.

She'd been asking for a "Rudolph," so her daddy braved three stores Friday afternoon to find one.  He had it waiting for her when we got to his basketball game Friday night.  So sweet.

I'll be back tomorrow for sure, y'all, 'cause I'm gonna post our Christmas card.  Hope everyone had a good weekend.
