Merry Christmas



Evan got his own tree this year. It's living and I hope to bring it to him until it gets too big to haul each December. We gave him presents of candy canes and Bapa brought some gummy bears that the mangy rabbit is guarding. The Halloween treat is still there...a little faded.

Evan was our only child who got a haircut at 12 months. He turned from baby to boy with that cut. We watch Jocelyn now as she grows and see that she is the same age and size as we remember him. Sometimes their likeness is startling. She also behaves in many of the same ways as he did. She is her own person, but right now, she is so much like her brother.

We have a full house tonight with my aunt, Tymon's mom and her sister all here in addition to our family. We talked and laughed. We ate roast beef and then acted out the nativity story as my father read from the scriptures. Jocelyn was so tired and let everyone know about it. The boys were pleasant and only called each other a few names.

The house is now quiet and everyone's asleep now except Santa and Mrs. Claus. Santa wishes the elves would put together the toys for him. Mrs. Claus wishes she didn't have to wrap anything and could go to sleep.

We think of you and yours and wish you a very Merry Christmas. May you find hope and love in the birth and life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
