We hope you had a
Merry Christmas!
And we wish you a
Happy New Year!
These are some of the ice candle holders
that I made as gifts this year.
I picked the wrong year to go with an ice craft
because it has been so warm.

Our Christmas tree
has ornaments from all over the world
and from special people in our lives.
We see things from Kenya, Vietnam, Laos, Ethiopia, India... from friends and relatives things we have made ourselves.
For us, looking at the tree is a trip down memory lane.

These three had more holidays than I did
so one day I returned home from work and
found them playing Settlers of Catan.

We saw some some friends from
years gone by and faraway places.....

We were able to read to Natalie and Everett.

We know that some of our friends are going through rough times and we want to assure them of our continued prayers and support. We wish everyone good health, safety, peace and happy relationships in the New Year.
