Very Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year.  We sure did!  Our scare earlier this week was nothing and we just spent a couple hours at the cardiologists having her confirm that Hope looked fine.  It was a wonderful appointment and put our minds at ease for the holidays.

Our whole family had a wonderful weekend with family for Christmas.  Santa stopped by on Christmas eve because he knew we would not be able to visit him and get pictures taken.  We even took Hope to Jerry's mom and dad's house for Christmas eve.  It was great being with family...Hope was her normal cranky self because it was her cranky time of the day.  The boys were thrilled to spend time with their cousins opening presents and playing with all their new toys.  Christmas morning was wonderful.  My mom came over to watch the boys open their presents and help cook.  It was perfect because Jerry is finally old enough to understand Santa and was really excited to see what Santa left for him.  The rest of the family came over all day and it was great having everyone with us for Christmas.

We are so thankful this year and God has provided so much for us this year.  It has been hard, but it has also been truly rewarding.  We want to thank everyone for all the help, prayers, and support this past year.  I know we are going to rely on everyone again next year.

Love, health, and happiness to everyone!
