Merry Christmas Everyone!

At this Christmas time, we loved having Taylor, Bradley and Lindsay home for the holidays. Taylor has recently finished his training for EOD school and will be graduating in January. Bradley is finishing up his first round of internship back East and will be heading off to school again in January at BYU-Hawaii. Lindsay is loving school in Salt Lake City and will return to finish up after Christmas. Benjamin is at the MTC and will head off to Chile in mid-January. Brian is the only one at home now and is involved with school and LaCrosse. Our oldest four, Kelli, Richard, Larry and Kimber are married and are busy with their own families. We have 13 grandchildren, with # 14 expected in June.

Catherine received matching dresses for herself and her doll from Grandma and Grandpa

Robert and I want to tell all of our family and friends how very much we love you all at this Christmas season! We are so blessed to have each of you in our lives and we recognize the great blessing at this time of year of knowing that Jesus Christ was born and lived that we might know Him and follow Him as we go through this earthly experience. We appreciate having the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. It gives us direction and guidance, peace and assurance as we face daily challenges. We hope you will each have a wonderful Christmas and that you will be able to spend time with your family and friends as we will.
We love you all...
Merry Christmas!
