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.

Clara, that will put your eye out. Good thing mom and dad didn't get you that BB gun. And Shaelyn really likes the mallet for your drum.

I think Shelley means that you will "shoot your eye out", Clara. : ) I guess you can tell that I watched that movie about three times this year. I think the Red Ryder is safe, but watch out for those icicles! They can be very dangerous. I hope you feel better!

I'm so sorry she was sick for Christmas, she looks so cute and so sad at the same time. I'm glad to hear you had a good Christmas though. We Miss you guys.
