I was thinking this morning how blessed we are as a family, we are blessed to have such great sons and daughters who are there for each other and care about the feeling of each other, who have the gospel in their lives and compassion they have for each other and others as well. For sons and daughters that love their families and the lifes of their families. We are blessed for the awesome grandkids we have for the special spirit that each one has, for the friendship each one has for each other for the principles of the gospel that they are taught in their homes, for the compassion and concern they have for people that have disabilities.. I love them so much. I am blessed for my terrrific husband, the spirit he has about him, for the principles that he has taught our children, for him being so honest and truthful, for his fun personality and the fun he has taught our kids and grandkids. for being my true friend, eternal companion and I just can't say enough about him I love you my sweetheart. First and most important I love the Savior, our elder brother, I love the tender mercies he gives us the knowledge we have about him and the forgiveness he gives us. we are blessed to have our extended families and the families before that. May each of us dwell more on Christ this christmas and know the true meaning of christmas we love you all Merry Christmas

Last night our ward had their christmas party. It was the journey to Bethlehem. we dressed in the attaire of that time, we arrived at the church, went in the front doors and had to pay our taxes before entering the chapel. our taxes was a can for food. We entered the chapel and got our instructions, we had to sign the creed when we left the chapel and got our bag of coins, which bought our clothes if not dressed up, bought food, and games It was just like going to Bethlehem the decorations were beautiful and it was such a fun and spiritual night. Ross played one of the kings and I ran the punch booth. All in all it made a big impression on all the kids and adults too. It was great having the true meaning of Christmas expressed.
