Christmas, Christmas and more Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas - thank God! We had Christmas with my sisters on the 13th, then Christmas in the cottage 16th, Christmas with the Sawyers 23rd, Christmas at home 24th, and Christmas with the Hucks 25th! Going back and forth to Columbia was worth it especially when we woke up at home to find the fireplace doors opened and toys all around on Christmas morning. Despite some evil bug that luckily for me was a jump start for my New Years diet, all was as close to perfect as can be. The four Hucks were in our first Christmas play (with about 25 other folks) at church and three of our cottage girls got to take part as well. Elissa shared her memorization passage from Matthew several times and even brought a few of us to tears. And as for presents... well we all got more than we deserved. Now if I can manage to give away more than half of what was already here I'll be happy. Thank you family! Thank you God for every good thing!

December with the Hucks

[OK well the Picture messed up loading it and I have to wait until I'm back at the cottage to load it... sorry!]

Wow... this month has held a lot of special events and Christmas is a week away... there are pictures of Adam and Elissa taking pictures of each other around our little tree. There are pics of Isabella at gymnastics observation. There are pictures from the 5K Reindeer Run where I ran with my pals Cynthia and Laura and had my greatest fans bundled up on the sidelines. There is also a quick pic from Elissa's Christmas Program at her 4K where she recited a large passage from Luke along with her class. It was great! The girls also tried a tough picture ala James Bond???
