As our year comes to an end, we are grateful for all of God's blessings in our lives. It has been a very different Christmas this year, and very quiet. With Ed, Deb, Suzanne and DJ in China we have not had much company or family with which to share the holiday; but we are so blessed to have many dear friends at Hillside Baptist Church and Charity Riders CMA chapter. We are so very glad our children are safe and healthy.
Pat and James, Emma and Rachael are in Wichita and Mitchel is living in Iowa at this time. Dan, Mandy, Katelynn and Jacob live in Iowa so we were not able to see them at Christmas. But Pat was here for Thanksgiving and we had visited Dan and family in Iowa back in October. Mama stayed in Louisiana this year and my sister Judy went to Kentucky to help her two younger daughters move back to Louisiana.
Katherine, Judy's oldest, did come to spend a couple of days with us the week of Christmas. We had a good visit and some fun times playing dominoes. Come again soon Katherine as we enjoyed your visit very much.
