Merry Christmas!

And that it was! We had a great day today. We had a great time especially because he had around 8 inches of snow last night and most of it fell in less than 8 hours. The boys were so excited to have some snow to use their new sleds on. Today the weather was wonderful, bright blue skies, snow on the trees and ground, it was just a beautiful day. We all had a fun time this morning opening gifts and enjoying time with each other. I am so glad that I have the rest of this week off. It is some much needed time to spend with my boys. It will be so nice to be able to just "hang out" with the boys and spend some quality time without having to worry about being anywhere or doing anything. After we do some cleaning that really needs some attention, we will bust out some games, watch some movies that we got for Christmas, and hopefully have some "Peace on Earth" in our home for a few days.
The last few days I have felt so much more peace and comfort. I know that the Lord has blessed me with that peace so that we could have a nice Christmas that we will remember for a long time. John has been such a great support lately, and that has meant the world to me. I was seriously worried about us and which way we were headed, but I think things are turning around and we are doing so much better now.
Well, I am going to go check on my boys before I go to bed. I am so grateful for such a great day like today. Its what we all needed.

Karen,
I'm so glad that you are feeling more peace and that you had such a wonderful Christmas. I know things can get pretty tough and you don't know what tomorrow will bring, but what joy it is when you feel the Lord's love and have the support of your husband. I would LOVE to see pictures of your boys playing in the snow!

We missed you and wished you were with us on Christmas Eve when John, Mandy, Mom & Dad and the rest of the family that lives here got together. As usual we had a musical concert and goofed around. Jess almost kicked everyone out several times but she rested and had her morphine so she was able to handle the noise a bit better.

((((Hugs))) to you and your boys (John included)

I almost forgot to say that I hope this coming year brings you more laughter than tears, more smiles than frowns and more good medical reports with NO surprises! LOL

Love you,
Nancy
