Cousins are the best!

It was my joy to host Christmas for my family this year. My goal was to keep it simple and casual. Being our first Christmas without my dad, its made me appreciate and soak in these special moments with my family even more.

In a way, my dad’s passing has brought us closer together. Despite losing him this year, we have so much to be grateful for, including TWO new lives that entered our family.

Praise God for the blessing of new life and the hope and promise of life eternal.

We miss you everyday, dad.

The next day, Roy & Laura were in town so we celebrated Christmas again at Grandma & Grandpa’s…
