Santa Fe, Dec. 25 Wednesday

Merry Christmas to all!! We have had a splendid time in Santa Fe. Today was a family day.

We made it to 9 AM Mass at St. John the Baptist church in Santa Fe. They had a full house and the pastor gave a good sermon. At least it seemed that way, I admit I have forgotten most of his points by now. Oh well.

The day was spent at Jude’s. Breakfast for us was more of Jude’s home-made pecan-cinammon coffee cake. Jude, Bernie, and Tony had more time to eat there than we did and had a more extensive menu. Appetizers before the meal featured some items new to us like a ginger spread and a fig topping. Other people said they were good.

Lucien and Joyce joined us at noon. We did not do a Christmas puzzle, we just enjoyed each other’s company, along with brief walks and card playing. Phone calls to Kathy and Mike and FaceTime with Deb, Rebecca, Sarah and Sarah were part of the holiday feeling.

Dinner was focused around a lamb roast. Lamb is not our usual meat and Jude went out on a limb to try something different. It turned out excellent.

The group had agreed not to give major gifts to each other but we each obtained minor gifts to fill a Christmas stocking for each person. From candy to pencils to calendars to cosmetics and basic utensils, we entertained ourselves with opening the gifts.

Desserts continued to be a main attraction and our sugar intake has increased substantially. At least if we keep this pace up, the desserts will be gone soon and we can revert back to our normal diet.
