A Tender Pennsylvania Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 has come and gone at our home but we are still enjoying the peace and joy of the season as we look forward to the new year starting in 4 days. Matthew and Melissa were here for a glorious 9 days and we loved every minute of it. Nothing is more wonderful than having all your family around you and we have had a wonderful time. Max and I are so blessed to have 4 wonderful, healthy children, one beautiful and gracious daughter-in-law and eachother. We couldn't ask for more!

We spent our time together talking, laughing, playing games, cooking, making cookies, watching movies and more talking. What fun it is to not only converse with your grown children but to watch as they communite together as adults. I have more fun just watching and listening to them than just about anything else.

Christmas morning was so much fun. Santa had come and placed his gifts carefully under the tree and when the kids came down in the morning, they were all so happy to see that even though they are all grown, Santa still takes care to put those extra special touches under the tree. It is funny that Christmas day is the only day the Living Room is allowed to get messy! On this day of Christmas, this room is made for mess!

We are so thankful for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and His life. This time of year is beautiful and we are thankful for the joy it brings and that lingers in our hearts. We are also thankful for our wonderful friends and family that touch our lives each and every day. We are truly blessed!

We are hopeful for the new year and anticipate good things will come for our family. We are so thankful for the wonderful friends and family that bless our lives each and every day.
