Merry Christmas to All

We had a great Christmas and I hope all of you did too. Our Christmas started a week before. All of our family got together early because it was our off year. Everyone went to their in-laws on Christmas day except for Kris, Tiersa, & the girls. We had our traditional grilled cheese made with Boudin's sourdough bread (yum) and tomato soup. I also made the 13 bean soup. Then we opened presents. The grand kids had so much fun and so did we just watching them.

Christmas morning Warren and I watched the Christmas devotional, which was a beautiful way to start the day with inspiring music and guidance from a prophet of God. It helped us to focus on the true meaning of Christmas which is the greatest gift that has ever been given to man,  our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We went to church with Kris, Tiersa, the girls and Maxcine.  Tiersa was one of the singers along with a few other people in the program. She sang beautifully. Then we went to their house to see the girls presents.

We spent the entire evening Christmas night talking to Elder JT in Thailand on skype. Skype is the best thing ever. We were able to have Steven and Marianne in Utah on at the same time. It makes having him gone just a little easier. Everyone else in the family came over to talk to him too. He is doing so great. He is so happy and loves his mission. We are so proud of his willingness to serve the Lord and teach the people in Thailand His gospel. He will be home in less than 4 months.  It was so good to see him and it made Christmas perfect.
