We had a wonderful family time on Christmas day. Taylor came after work on Christmas Eve day and Katelyn and Drew drove from Minneapolis after a half day of work (long day for them), so we were all home for Christmas morning. After our morning gift exchange, which was wonderful, although too much … we went outside and enjoyed the unusually warm weather. One of the gifts to the family (from Brenda) were Knockerballs and so the afternoon was spent blowing them up and bumping each other around in the backyard. Definitely a fun time.
After dinner (steak ... a tradition from the Howard family) we all went to our new local Liberty Center and watched the new 2015 Star Wars movie - The Force Awakens. The new shopping area is exceptionally nice and so well done that it is worth driving to shop there if you live in SW Ohio. I don't think I'll ever go back to a "normal" movie theatre after the Cobb Luxury 15. Also we were particularly pleased with the decorations and attention to the "reason for the season." Inside the beautifully lit 50 foot (approx) simulated Christmas tree was a public nativity scene. Sure is great to live in a community that does not shy away from Christian greetings and imagery ... thankfully the ACLU and government hasn't YET been able to threaten private businesses.
