We're off to Baltimore to celebrate Xmas eve at my parents.
Mom & Wilson. Dad wasn't feeling great so he stayed resting.
Bill and Billy relaxing after dinner.
Julep and Derby after all the excitement of attention.
They are also waiting for something to drop on the floor.

This prayer asks God to help make Christmas a special
moment by guiding the world toward peace and happiness:
Loving God, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds, and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts. May the Christmas morning make
us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to
our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
