I was up early, wrapping gifts, making my Waldorf Salad, and delivering a gift next door to the new neighbor. Sparky new something was up. He was all hyper following me around and getting all upset everytime I went out the door without him. I didn't have the heart to leave him home so I took hime to my nephew's with me. I had to get his pillow and seat belt out of the honda and put it in the rental, Toyota. I figured because I was going early, it would be OK to take Sparky. He likes to run around in my nephew's yard.

My nephew had to go to work at 3:30 so many of the family came early, too. Some neighborhood children left the front door open and Sparky ran out. He met my nephew's in-laws so we figured he'd come in with them. We thought wrong. He took off across the street and explored and sniff around all the neighbors houses with me trailing after him. He ignored me and I hoped I could head him off before he got to the field and woods beyond. Luckily, he wondered into someones garage. It was the last house before the field and I was able to get him and carry him back to my nephew's. I headed home around 3:30 so I could walk Sparky before I went to church.

When I drove up to the church, it started snowing and blowing. The wind blew over the Luminaries and some of the bags caught on fire. We had to put them out. They looked so beautiful along the walk and my friend, Tina and her husband, Dennis, spent a lot of time and effort getting them ready.

I sang in the choir for the Traditional Service and then off to the Town Point Church about 20 minutes away for the Contemporary Service. Our church owns the Town Point Church but the two congregations merged together. We have occassional services there. Both candle light services were beautiful. Cindy and I had to count the offering but we had we had no supplies at Town Point. We used a paper plate and pen to write down the amounts of the money and I took the money to Trinity Church to put in the safe. The pastor met me there so I wouldn't have to go into the dark church by myself.
