Music boxes

Music boxes
Music boxes have within melodies they carry in them, once they're open music feels the air;
Every person you have known has a song of their own, once they open up you'll hear whats there;
Every person longs to find who they are deep inside, every person yearns to know their place..."

A very merry Christmas indeed.


Once a barbie girl, always a barbie girl!

Suzana's a mommy. This is one special baby that talks back to us, hugs and kisses. We're all in love with this new adition to the family.

Give a boy some wheels, and he'll be your friend forever!

Bookworm is happy for the new supply!

OPERATION! This is a family favorite.

It has been a while since we took the time to keep in touch with our friends, and we are sorry. We love you, and think of you often. Time has been scarse but you still live in our hearts everyday.

Christmas is a time of reflexion around here. We start the month of December putting the Christmas tree up and then we read a scripture and story and sing a song every day until Christmas. Suzana and Nicolas are doing great and have learned the true meaning of Christmas.

This month I received news of a very dear friend that has colon cancer, and also of another friend who just miscarried her baby for the 8th time. As I thought about these events, my testimony has grown that Jesus really is the reason for the Season. Only through Him can we endure and still find happiness in life. I feel humbled to think of His sacrifice for us, to think that because of Him, I can make it through everything until I meet Him again.

We love this Season!
May each one of you find peace in your hearts that only comes through our Savior.

The pictures at Christmas are priceless, where is Jabus? I saw the picture of Suzana with her short hair, she is beautiful. You also write beautifully.

Your children are so beautiful! They look like they really enjoyed Christmas.

It seems like this time of year I also reflect on all that I have been blessed with. It's hard not to feel down when I think of my friends who are experiencing such a loss. The best thing we can give our friends is prayer.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
