Christmas dinner was with the Elders, Liz, and Molessia. But earlier, as the rolls raised, the Elders took us to"Abbots Cliff". There was a view of Harrington Sound that was spectacular. We also took time to stop at the smallest gas station we've ever seen(open 365 days/year). I've been wanting a picture of it for a while and with traffic at a minimum it was a perfect day.

Christmas day came early, we headed out at 8:00 am with the Elders for breakfast with the Branch President and his family. We had so much fun, they shared with us a wonderful breakfast and family traditions, making us feel very at home. We then headed out to pick folks up for Church, on our way one of our sisters called for a ride (the buses were on holiday schedule for Christmas) so we took a diversion out to pick her up. We weren't that late but only enjoyed 15 minutes of meeting as it only lasted 40 minutes max. But the fun of the company and the energy of a packed house for Church made it all worth it. Everyone stayed, visiting and making Merry Christmas Wishes to all.

I've another favorite for Bermuda. These cookies are fabulous! They only come in for the Christmas season. When I thought about taking a picture of them, POOF, they were gone. Just like magic or maybe Bart being around. No matter they were delicious ; )

The Christmas Dinner was fun and well attended. They say give them food and they will come! Must be true. We had a short program which included the nativity and several musical numbers. As things were coming to a close, Elder Webster dashed off to the airport to pick up the Manhattan Temple President and his wife. They came to visit the Branch on Sunday. Their timing could not have been more perfect; as about 1/2 of the active members are off to the NYC to attend the Temple. President Garff was able to put them at ease and get them ever more excited for their adventure.
