Hello and Merry Christmas to my Dear Blogger Buddies!

This year has been good to me and our family.  Despite a few more pounds, a little less hair, and a lot more wrinkles, Jeff and I have been blessed with a wonderful family, two new adorable grandchildren, fabulous friends, the opportunity to continue with our missionary work and the energy and health to keep up with it all.

I have missed blogging on a regular basis this year and I especially miss keeping up with all of you who have enriched and inspired my life with your kindness, humor, goodness and amazing photography.  I have made a resolution to spend more time with my camera and with my
blogging buddies in 2014!

I hope this year has been kind to you and your families as well.  Our family, like everyone's families, has challenges and set backs.  But we try to focus on our many blessings and remember that our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, is here to buoy us up during our struggles, mend our broken hearts when disappointments come, and give us hope for a glorious future.  We hope you join
with our family in celebrating His birth this Christmas!
