Blessings to family and friends
We have had a big year, We became grandparents in Feb. to two of the sweetest little boys, who are going to be a big handful to their parents.

M.J. is 20 and still living at home and running a skidder in the woods.
He will be setting up a trailer this next summer on a piece of our property.

Shayne is 17 and in his last year of school and is thinking of going to vo-tech for auto mechanic , since that is what he really likes to do.
He was baptizes this month, We are very blessed by the stand he took to be a follower of the great Shepherd.

Levi turned 14 the end of Nov. he likes to be outside as much as he can.
He likes to do experiments,and build things.
He has been a big help to me especially when Colton and Jackson are here,as they are more work than just having one at a time.

Hadassah is 6 1/2 years old and loves being an auntie, she loves babies,
along with her sister they love playing house and having a good time.
She also got a pony from her brother this spring and she has been learning to ride. she is in the first grade and loving to read her own books now.

Hosannah is 4 1/2 and our handful,full of life,and always on the go.
She likes playing with the twins, but as soon as they start getting into her stuff I think it will be a different story.
She loves playing with all her dollies,and playing in the playhouse that daddy built for them.

Remember Jesus is the reason for the season and He is the Greatest Gift we can ever receive!!!

When I was young And too little to know I thought "Merry Christmas" Meant presents and snow Just a big tree with tinsel and lights all aglow!
I didn't understand nor Do I think that I cared The "true" message of Christmas Was the Love that God shared!
I'd heard about the King who was born in a manger But what's the fuss about some baby who to me was a stranger?It wasn't until I had children of my own That my "heart-strings" were tugged and the void became known I learned the most important thing about life is to love And that Jesus, my Savior, was sent from above His life an example of true love and devotion The lights, sounds and hustle ... nothing more than commotion
His life pure and precious freely given for me Was so hard to believe yet so simple to see Oh, I still sing and buy gifts to thank those I love But I'll never forget God's great gift from above So make no mistake of this "Truth" I partake HIS birth is the reason to bring Joy to this season! Blessings to all of you.
