What a blessed Christmas we had--I loved watching the kids squeal in excitement as they rounded
the corner to the living room and first saw their Santa gifts. Priceless moment!
We talked with the kids on Christmas Eve about the birth of Christ…and how this is the reason for the season. Of course, Santa Claus and the gift giving is a fun part of this holiday--but our focus is on Christ and his birth. And a special time to count our blessings. How thankful I am to my Heavenly Father for blessing me so richly---to be able to spend this earthly life with my dear children and husband. I love them each dearly. I pray that Jody and I can continue to instill a deep love and reverence in each of our children for the Savior. To be appreciative of His life, His earthly mission, His example of unconditional love for all mankind and for the great sacrifice He made for each of us….the Atonement.
