CHRISTMAS DAY 2011

Well, I was up at 2:00 and at 4:00 and now it’s 6:00.  Coughing my head off and feeling like yuck!  No way I can go to church…and I am so sad to miss the 65th anniversary celebration.  But, I am sure I am still contagious and besides that, if anyone sat near me they could not hear anything!  Why does God keep things like this from us when He knows how much we desire them?  I have no answer other that knowing it is better for me to be at home taking care of myself, than being at church.  I know God sees where the greater good will come and so that is what I have to trust in.  I don’t have to be happy about it, though.  But, His will, not mine.

So, since I have an infinite amount of time here…I shall upload to the blog the lovely pictures we made on Christmas Day 2011.  Yes. Yes, I know it is almost February and I am quite late. No. No, the pictures have not been in my possession.   No I did not take them.  I am just thrilled to have them now…and that’s all I’m gonna say about that!  So here we are …in pictures…

  1. What a beautiful family! So sorry to hear you are sick and missed the celebration at church. Hope you feel better soon. If you find out who stores the CODE, please let me know. You have to put it in whenever a battery dies and my husband had to get a new battery for his Honda last fall. He opened the glove box to get the paper out that had the code and the paper was gone. So, no radio.

  2. You have an absolutely beautiful family! Love the pictures! hope you're feeling better really soon!

  3. Tonja, the pictures are beautiful. When I saw the picture of you and Joy with your grandchildren I couldn't help but think how much your mother would have enjoyed them.

  4. What wonderful, warm, love-filled pictures! I especially like the one of your three boys together. Somebody has to do something about the male-female ratio in this family, hahahaha!
