This is probably my last post before Christmas. We are leaving tomorrow for my sister Cyndi's house. It should be a very nice holiday. Friday Jeff and I are going to the Washington D.C. temple to help the youth do baptisms. On Saturday we are spending the day with Jeff's mom and his Aunt Rita. On Christmas Eve my whole family is spending the night at Cyndi's and waking up Christmas morning together. It will be the first time we've all been together for a Christmas Morning since Anna was born. I am so excited. And then Christmas day we are going to Jeff's Aunt Karen's to spend the day with Jeff's Dad and his Grandparents, Aunts, Uncle and cousins. It will be busy and hectic but I know it will be worth it.
I am sorry that I have not been as diligent with my stories as I promised. There are some really good ones that I've read but been unable to get on the computer. My kids have just loved the time we have spent together in the evenings and I think the stories have really helped them (especially for Anna) get into the "Christmas Spirit" a little sooner. It has definitely been a success, and I am excited that we will have a new Christmas tradition to look forward to every year.
Mostly, I wanted to post today to let everyone know how much I appreciate having them in my life. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas!
