Then this morning, I went to church. I went by myself, Twizzler had a mild seizure and Twiz watched him sleep while Twizlet was feeling exhausted, plus I wanted some time to worship without any disruption.

We have a long-standing tradition of celebrating with family the day before Christmas Eve; affectionately called Christmas Adam. By best count, we started 18 years ago. Thank goodness for the blog, it helps me remember things that could be lost forever.
We had 6 of us adventuring together today, me, my sweetie, the three youngest, and Grandpa. It's strange to have so few of us living in the house now. That is exactly half the number of kids I had here for Christmas last year.
But I digress...
This is about Christmas Adam. We began our day delivering friend and neighbor gifts. My sweetie was working, so we didn't all leave together until about 3:00. Our first stop was the Museum of Art on the BYU campus in Provo. They didn't have many pieces on display, but they had one in particular I wanted the kids to see.
In today's secular world, it is a struggle to bring Christ into Christmas.
I was wrong.
He trounced me the first 2 games and I finally beat him in the third. It was SO much fun! Then when my sweetie went to pay, they handed his card right back and refused to charge us with a simple "Merry Christmas" in return. Thanks, Fat Cats!!Utah's Adventure Family told us that Riley's Orchard was the best place to visit for a reasonable price, so we made the trip.
We bought more donuts and a couple of other things from the gift shop before we loaded up again.
