So, Christmas is officially over, isn’t it?  The Christmas Eve service was beautiful.  The Christmas Day service was beautiful, too.  Chip played his trumpet—did ok on one song and great on the other.  We were really proud, and his Nana had tears in her eyes.  Awww…  Chip and Parker got up at 2:30 on Christmas […]
