Its three days until Christmas, and just exactly two weeks until we go to the Missionary Training center. I think we are ready for Christmas, well almost. Christmas Eve is at our house this year. We will set our feast for 22 people. I think our little house will be bursting at the seams, but having family all about is just part of Christmas.
Part of getting ready for the holidays and getting ready for our mission was visiting our children all scattered all over the United States. In May we visited Greg and Brenda in North Dakota. Then at Thanksgiving we headed to warm Southern California to visit the California Kids. We even camped at the beach for Austin's 14th birthday. Then after a day of lots of turkey we headed to Sea World with Mike and Kasey. Lo and behold, who is also at Sea World, but Matt and Debbie and their family from Utah.
Our last trip was to Kentucky to visit Tracy and Paul and their family. Little Sarah, age 11 months will be a walking, talking toddler by the time we get back from Argentina. While we were there it snowed, and then we came home to snow and cold. Boy, going to summer time in Argentina sounds pretty good right now. Merry Christmas to all , and to all a good night.
