This is the first year that we won't be sharing Christmas with Nathan & Himilce, Elon & Asher, Marie & Jon & Zane, Elizabeth & Benjamin or our parents. We feeling a great "missing" of them. So this is a Merry Christmas greeting sent with all of our love and happy memories to our precious family and dear friends. We miss you and love you all.

Its hard to believe that it has been just a little over a month since Nathan and Himilce and the babies were here. I was skimming the pictures in the camera to finally write a new post, and couldn't resist a few more pictures from their visit. It has definitely been a "full" season for us; starting with their visit, then came Thanksgiving, then Steve and I celebrated our 30th anniversary (on the same day that Jon and Marie celebrated their 2nd), then we celebrated Olga's 18th birthday, then Steve and I attended a couple of weekend craft fairs, where I was able to sell some of my jewelry and some Christmas bulbs (Himilce and I had a great time making some of those bulbs when she was here). After that, we flew out to Oregon to visit Luke, and now here it is just 2 days before Christmas, and I think we are almost caught up and ready. The kids and I did one happy day of baking on Monday, but didn't get our "Christmas Piroshkis" made this year. We had a great time making them at Thanksgiving; that's a pic of them in the middle.
