Meaning and Traditions

Christmas 2009

Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends." ~ Margaret Thatcher (1925- ), English political leader
We were so blessed this Christmas to have all of the family together at Mom and Dad's. Our size is beginning to outgrow their house. We have 37 of us in basically two rooms. Sometimes it sounds like a football game with everyone talking and little kids playing and making noise. Mom and Dad enjoy it while we are there, and really enjoy it when we all leave. Traditions being passed on from one generation to another. We truly enjoyed being able to have our traditional family Christmas this year.

Mom and Dad (aka: Santa and Mrs. Claus) they are always willing to have fun

Jack showing off his 'football' skills. Dad (Derek) seems to be very proud of his talent

This is what chaos looks like . . . watch where you step !

Thanks Mom and Dad for showing us how important it is to have traditions. We are so thankful that we have parents like you. May God's blessings be with you in the following years.
