Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Merry Christmas

We had fun visiting Greg's sister (Koni, in Galax, VA) on Christmas Eve. Clara would have had fun playing with her cousins if she weren't so miserable with a stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, diaper rash, etc. Here she is on Christmas morning, still not feeling good...

I guess she did not like any of her presents. I think she was dreaming of getting a Red Ryder BB Gun.

She did manage to have fun with some of her new toys, though.

We had a really fun time with just our small family together on Christmas. We opened stockings and presents in the morning, then had 6 friends + their kids over for brunch. (I forgot to take pictures). We just relaxed in the evening... something the 3 of us don't get to do together very often, so it was a really nice day.

Christmastime in Sweet North Caroline

Nicolle found really cute outfits for Clara and her cousin, Colton. They make a great Mr. & Mrs. Claus.

Here are Clara and Colton fighting over who gets to open a present.

We have tried to decorate our house on a budget, and we have found we can buy three times as many things if we just wait until after Christmas and buy all the lights, wreaths, floodlights etc ...
Next year we hope to have our house looking like the Griswold's house and win the Clark Griswold Award
While we did get a few fearfull looks from the neighbors while Greg was up on the ladder, it was a fairly uneventfull house decorating year.

P.S. And speaking of Christmas, haven't you found it strange that Niel Diamond(who is Jewish) sings Christmas Carols? (That's for you, Jefe)

Our friend, Jackie, took these great photos. She is opening a photography business this summer, so if any of you need portraits, weddings, scenic photos, or anything else I'll put you in contact with her. Thanks, Jackie!
