Christmas 2016 or the year it almost didn't happen

We have been so sick for almost a month, or longer so the usual Christmas preparations have been thin and sporadic.

We managed to find the world's smallest Christmas tree, we placed it on a desk in the living room so our newest rather troublesome family member wouldn't eat it!!

This newest member, Willis the dog, also made our annual family photo a bit of a gong show. Well, more than normal. I didn't think we'd get the photo done this year. But we managed to sneak it in tonight. May not be our best effort but we got it done!

I asked the kids to change into some nice clothes. A few minutes later the girls come out, dolled up, hair done, make-up on, and Gavin is laying in his sweatpants with his hair a mess. Signs of the future I guess. Willis resented having to wear his sweater! Unfortunately I also look as though I am on Prozac. Wes is always handsome, the man is photogenic!

We are thankful for so much this year. We are thankful that Wes still has work and that we are still managing in a very difficult economic climate. For this we are truly thankful.

May God bless you and your families!!
