Christmas 2012

We moved Jenna from her two-bedroom apartment to a new one-bedroom December 21-23. She said I was probably the only one who thought it was fun. (A big thanks to everyone for their help!)
We enjoyed several family meals during the move---always fun!

Keelie had her annual Girlie Christmas Party on the 23rd. Instead of it being at her house, we were thrilled to get to have it at Katie's house (a very special mom battling cancer). Such a special time together.

The evening of the 23rd Rick, Jenna, Jared, and I went out for a meal and drove around looking at Christmas lights.

This Christmas was different in several other ways.
*Although Uncle Tim had just had a shot in his knee earlier in the day, he was able to come Christmas Eve. We love our Uncle Tim!
*Justin had to work Christmas Day, but he was with us Christmas Eve as usual.
*Chad and Tara were not able to come in. They will come in from Singapore in February for a visit.
*Greg was here Christmas Day with Lisa for their first Christmas together.

Santa made his annual appearance after our Christmas Eve meal. I just love the "knock..knock...HO...HO...HO" followed by all the smiles and twinkling eyes!

Then the craziness of the gift exchanges began!

God has richly blessed our families. It was a Merry Christmas!


  1. I am glad you had a great Christmas in spite of the fact that not everyone was in one place at one time. Blessings and Happy New Year- xo Diana

  2. MUCH to be thankful for this year - as in every year!
    Happy New Year to you and yours!
