Christmas Day

Christmas was very nice to us this year.  We started early (of course) and then made the travels from here to Mom's house and then down to Susan's.  We didn't go to Grandpa's and it felt so strange.  I really missed him this Christmas.  We started the day with a devotional and really just had a nice nice day.  We really are blessed to have terrific families who love us and care about us, and also to have the gospel in our lives.  I am so thankful for the beautiful birth of our Savior.  He truly is what the season is about.  When we live like he did, we  can feel the true Christmas spirit.  I think my family found it this year.

On the day after Christmas, Charlene came down and we all met up again.  It was a nice day.  Everyone was there so we took a quick family shot.  Not great of me... but everyone else but Herb looks pretty good.
This is Charlene opening her gifts.  I think she really liked them.
