Above is a photo of me with my five. I certainly wish Mr. B had been home for this family photo.
Trimming our "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree. My favorite part of the Christmas tree are all the handmade ornaments we've collected over the past 24 + years. Many of the ornaments were made by my late mother but most have been made by our children for school craft projects.
We also enjoyed a couple suppers and evenings with my Dad (he's taking this photo) and my two youngest brothers, CA and KE, and their betrothed. My brother JJ is currently working in Alaska and couldn't join us. We had a grand time talking, laughing, and listening to/playing music.
This was the Christmas of all Christmas's for me and Dad. Sometime I will share the amazing story of our family's restoration - a restoration that only my Loving Heavenly Father could bring about.
On another note, I'd like to thank all the wonderful warm wishes you, my dear readers, sent while I was away. I can not tell you what a joy it was to pop in and see your loving and encouraging notes from time to time. Thank you.
In Christ's Love,
