. . . . . and Patrick and I are grateful to have another season to enjoy our family. Joseph is here from Florida and we have seen Celia and Jakob multiple times during the past two weeks. We feel so lucky to have our kids here with us whenever it is possible!
. . . . . we have enjoyed time with friends and extended family, shared food and drinks and holiday cheer.
. . . . . if the weather cooperates we will see my Mom and Dad in Nebraska sometime while Joseph is here and Celia is available. This will be the best holiday gift for my folks as much time passes between their visits with our young people!
. . . . . wishing you all the joys of the season. I am looking with hope and optimism to the new year.
