It has been a great day here in the Wiscombe household. We celebrated the birth of the little baby Jesus last night by reading the story of his birth. Then today awoke to presents under the tree delivered by Santa. We must have been good this year. Abby was so excited that she had recovered from the naughty list and made the nice list just in time. She worked really hard yesterday for all the mean things she has done. The problem is she hasn't been really all that bad, but she picks on her brother alot. But for all of us that have siblings that is just something that happens. You can try and control it, but you can't. I don't live in a dream land so I know it is going to happen. She just needs to be a bit nicer to him, and understand he is a baby and can't really stick up for himself at all. The house is ever filled with Christmas yummies. We made the traditional Rocky Road, Fudge, Peanut Bloosoms, and Rice Krispy Treats. We shared with our neighbors and family, and wish that you all were close enough that we could have shared them with you. We put the Christmas tree up November 1st, and today it went back in the box. I love this time of year. The lights, the music, the memories, the tree, and the joy on the faces of children. We have been lucky enough to have many great memories of the past, and are currently building Christmas memories for our children. We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and hope that this Christmas has been great for all of you. That you have been able to share time with family and friends. We hope and pray for all those on missions for the church and those serving in the military. That they know they are loved, and that we hope they had a great day. We wish all of you a wonderful New Year, and hope that all your dreams comes true. We hope that peace and hope will surround us, and enable us a 2010 full of good things.
