Saturday night we intended to head out to Everett Family Church for a night of worship. We had been tootling around in our van with chains on feeling very comfortable in the snowy/icy conditions on the roads here, so we were not nervous about heading out Saturday night even though the weather people were predicting severe winds. We got the van started, and were about to start loading up our tribe for the 5:00pm service when it started to snow. At that point we chickened out and decided that we better stay home. However, we invited friends over and had a delightful time catching up and carved out a significant amount of time to tell the story of Christmas to all 7 kiddos. This was our version of church for the week, and we loved it. Thanks to our friends who trekked through the snowy conditions to get to our house.
