Santa made an appearance
I don't know, exactly, why James is in my family picture...maybe he's Santa's Helper!
Aunt Belva and Uncle Bob are adopted Sweets.
These two little boys cracked me up. They were at the church for a scout meeting, saw the party and decided to help themselves to our dinner. Our parties are so cool we get party crashers! LOL
No pics, but we went out to Saratoga Springs for a yummy steak dinner for the Holladay Christmas party! The food was sooo good, I ate too much! It was great to see most of the Holladay clan.
My primary class came over for a party. I had boy gift bags and girl gift bags. One of the girls wanted a boy gift bag because she loved cars! I told her I didn't mind, but the boy who got her bag might.
Now I just want to curl up in my soft chair, by my fake Christmas tree and my fake fireplace and relax.
If you want to read what my family has been up to this past year, you can read my blog...so no family update letter. Let's just say we are doing good right now. This year has brought lots of surprises...some good, some not so much.
I'm not sure what kind of year I should wish for next year. No challenges means no growth. I suppose I will wish to be prepared for whatever this next year holds in store, treasure all the good times, appreciate the peace in my heart and the love of my family and friends.
My Christmas wish for you, is that whatever life brings you this year, may you never feel alone or unloved. Don't be afraid to close the doors on the bad stuff. If something makes you sad, it's ok to change the subject. Always look up when you only feel like looking down. Trust that God knows what's best. Do the best you can and let Him fill in the blanks. No one is more awesome at doing that than He is. Look for the good and you will find it. Smile, then get someone else to...everyday! I wish each of you a peaceful, happy heart.
