Merry Christmas

I most likely wont get around to wishing you all a Merry Christmas, so here it is - MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! Thank you to all of my friends who have been such a support to my family this year. We love you all and cherish our friendships.
Thanks to my Dad and Mom for sacrificing every Monday night for my and Darcies families. The meals have been awesome and the prayer meetings have been everything we have needed. I thank God for parents like you, who when you see a child is in need, you don't add more to the heavy load, but you get in the trenches with us and help us spiritually fight these battles. Without you, no telling where we would be. Your AWESOME. I love you both.
Speaking of my parents, they have once again given us a fabulous Christmas gift. Every other year, instead of giving gifts, we pack up and head to the snow. We always have a GRAND time and the memories we create will last us a lifetime. Just a question, what did you get for Christmas 5 years ago? Well, five years ago, we were sledding down the front lawn of our cabin. Even my Mom took a turn on the sled. Paul made an incredible snowman (it looked like a real man laying on the deck) and all the guys made a traditional snowman with a few extra details I wont mention LOL. We made mocha's and latte's every day and night with my then, new, Starbucks Machine. The kids made aprons (we still have them), thank you letters, and cookies, and we all had a merry ol time. I could give you details of our Christmas three years ago, but I don't want to bore you. The point is, even my kids can recall their times with the family these Christmas's. It is the perfect gift alternative. I look forward to another year of unforgetable memories. Merry Christmas All. We love you, and hope your New Year brings you peace, love, and a heart of gratitude.
