Christmas Eve 2013. A time when the Beissers came together to give thanks.
Grace, the gift of God, is what we did not deserve. Jesus, God with us, is what gives us the Joy. The Joy of knowing where our Hope lies, and the joy of giving thanks for our family.
The tree reminds me of my childhood; the tinsels, the the shimmer, the glow of rejoicing.
Dozens of goodies graced our table. This one especially cute. Little Santa hats made with a slice of banana, a strawberry, and topped with a small march mellow, held together with a toothpick.
The highlight for the men is our traditional Weisswurst. It is eaten with a special German potato salad and dipped into course-ground horseradish mustard, toned down with brown sugar and mayonnaise. The pot, especially designed for this sausage, came from Germany.
Chloe, Rachel, Megan, Sarah, Laura, Heidi, Julia.
The grandsons Josiah, and Jacob. The youngest and the oldest of all the grandchildren.
Never loosing an opportunity to show off, Luke and Eli.
And our newest member of the family: Jafar from Nigeria, 6 feet 6 inches tall, and basket ball star for LCA in Lynchburg.
Decked out with Lakers cap and Kobe Bryant shirt. What a blessed day we had.
