Well, we survived Christmas and all the chaos! The busy, hectic, running around seemed more this year than in the past. I really love the Christmas season, but wish I could just hang back and spend time with those most important. That seems nearly impossible, because they were all busy and running too! When did things get so crazy!?! I meant to send out Christmas cards, but never got around to it. I even had them all printed up, but never sent them out...so, here is what you would have received if I had been more on top of everything! Our beautiful pictures were taken by the very talented Julie Freeman!
I hope everyone I didn't have a chance to connect with had a fantastic Christmas! We all made out well. The big thing this year was a Wii from Dave's brother Ben and his wife Heather! Thank you guys! We have already played on it a bunch and love the family time it has seemed to bring :) The kids all got new bikes, amongst many many more gifts (they were entirely too spoiled!!!). I was thankful for the time we did get to spend with all our family...although I still wish it had been more! We are very thankful for the blessings we have received and feel so blessed for having the gospel in our lives! I am so thankful for our Savior!
So on the the New Year we go! Hopefully Dave will get more work, and my kids will continue to amaze me!
