Originally uploaded by whatnext. Hills, Minnesota. We had Christmas dinner with several dozen of Sara's relatives. What a riot! I think I gained about twenty pounds just by seeing how much food there was.

This is the spot that marks the traditional exact place of birth of Jesus Christ.

"Fitted into the paving, shines a 14 pointed silver star marking the exact spot surrounded by the Latin inscription: HICDE VIRGINE MARIA JESUS CHRISTUS NATUS EST. 1717. (Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary). Of the 15 lamps burning around the recess, six belong to the Greeks, 5 to the Armenians and four to the Latins." [Description from]

Merry Christmas!

Sara and I are with her parents in Luverne, Minnesota, after spending over a week with my parents in Salt Lake City, Utah. May the blessing of Christ's peace be with you all.
