Christmas 2010

Christmas was a whirlwind!  We spent a lot of time together and it was very peaceful!  It was very important to instill in Jeremy some family traditions.

We baked plates of cookies for the Sheriff's Department & Social Services.  We want to teach Jeremy that Christmas is about showing your appreciation for others, especially those who work hard to keep us safe.  This will hopefully be an annual bake-a-thon!


Savannah got a new festive Flowerball!






We took a carriage ride...





We saw Santa and his fabulous emeral green chair...


We set up the train set to go around the Christmas tree and put out the presents....



We went to Church on Christmas Eve...


And then we all went to bed and anxiously awaited what Santa would bring...


Later that afternoon, it started to snow....and snow....and snow more!




We were aware that someone very important to us was missing, but we tried to focus on our blessings and look forward to the year ahead.  Hope is something we can never give up on, and we have turned to our faith to get us through the difficult times while being so thankful for everything we have been blessed with.

Many blessings to you today and tomorrow and always!
