Talen is serving a mission in the West Indies and he sends his Christmas greetings with this sandman instead of a snowman. I love the coconut head and ball cap. We haven't even built a snowman this year. I've actually loved the warm weather we have been having. I could handle winter if it stayed this way.I'll take the warmer days for as long as we can have them.
Here he is with the only 4 missionaries in the upper part of Gwada. They have to be off the beach by
9:00 am. They usually go to the beach around 5:00 in the morning on their P-day which is their day off. They only have a few hours in the morning to themselves for sightseeing.
A few pictures from my house to yours. It was a wonderful Christmas. We were able to talk with Talen via Skype. I love technology.
Grandpa, aka champ, is holding our new little Christmas present Nahla.
She is so sweet and beautiful.
I did happen to do a little sewing for Randy. His first man quilt out of Back Country designed by
The Paper Loft for Riley Blake Designs.
It is so cozy and warm out of the flannel. He loves it.
This time of season is a wonderful time to reflect on all the many things we can be grateful for.
I love having my children home and enjoying great movies, food and conversation.
The New Year is soon to come.
I wish you all a Happy New Year. There is so much to be grateful for, even a midst the storm. I love the quote..."Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Many Happy Sewing Days in the Year 2012!!!
