Christmas Eve morning my family gathers to eat breakfast at the kitchen counter in our “jammies.”  We laugh a lot while we try to wake up.  We read the Christmas Story, then open a few Christmas presents.  If the weather is nice, we grab hats, gloves and scarves for an exhilarating walk together.  (Yes, some of us are still in our pajamas – this makes the walk even more  fun!)

Here’s our yummy Gluten-Free
 Christmas Breakfast Menu
Wake-Up Berry Smoothie or a Big Bowl of Fresh Fruit
Scrambled Eggs
Crisp Bacon (nitrate-free)

Fresh Hot Coffee, Hot Irish Tea or Hot Chocolate


I hope YOU have a wonderful, joyous Christmas!
Remember that you are very much loved  To make your day extra special here’s 
the Christmas Story 
told exactly, 
well, um,  
not exactly 
the way it happened 
but very cute and fun to watch…


 Merry Christmas!

Luke 2:8-20 ~ The Message
There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. 
They had set night watches over their sheep.  
Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified.  
The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: 
A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
At once the angel was joined by a huge 
angelic choir singing God’s praises:
Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.
As the angel choir withdrew into heaven, the sheepherders talked it over. “Let’s get over to Bethlehem as fast as we can and 
see for ourselves what God has revealed to us.”   
They left, running, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.  Seeing was believing. They told everyone they met what the angels had said about this child. 
All who heard the sheepherders were impressed.
Mary kept all these things to herself, holding them dear, deep within herself. The sheepherders returned and let loose, glorifying and praising God for everything they had heard and seen. 
It turned out exactly the way they’d been told!
