The holidays are known for bringing large groups of people together. Most of us can recall large groups of family members crammed into one home for an extended visit. The eating and sleeping arrangements may be a little unorthodox, but a few days of eating at the ironing board and sleeping in the attic are worth it, right?

Merry Christmas from Capps. The Adventist Church had their Christmas service last Saturday. We attended the second Christmas program at Capps Full Gospel in the morning and the evening program at Restoration Life Fellowship in Batavia last Sunday night. I ended up going to the community choir presentation of Handel's Messiah by myself Monday night as Jennifer was tired out. It was great and a bit different in the new location with a new conductor. We're looking forward to some quiet days at home before Christmas. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire and all that stuff. Blessings, Doug more
