Christmases Past

We have been reminiscing about Christmases past with the Franks (my sister and brother-in-law) in Germany. We spent many Christmases with them during our time at BFA, because they were also on staff. We miss those days!
Luke and Tyler with their cousins, Shawna and Sharla. Christmas 1992.

Christmas with the Franks (and dad's favorite O Henry chocolate bars!) - 1993

Christmas on the Uncle Dan's farm in Saskatchewan - 1994

A Celtic Christmas Eve

Tonight we attended the 10:45 pm Celtic Christmas Eve candlelight service at First Presbyterian in downtown Colorado Springs. Beautiful!

Merry Christmas to all!

Tonight we enjoyed our traditional Christmas Eve pizza fondue, just the two of us! We are missing our kids, but they will be coming soon! Merry Christmas from our house to yours! 

 Potpourri making the house smell good!
