Season Greetings for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year.  This year we have chosen to minimize the commercial side of Christmas.   We had a Christmas focused on the important relationships with our family and friends.   We gave the kids a couple of simple gifts and stockings along with a little fun money.  I have tried to teach the kids about giving with out the expectation of receiving anything back.  We do like to encourage them to donate to worthy causes for the new year.

Cast aside fear. Move forward to be all that God has created you to be.

This  week has been both difficult and joyful.

FIRST:  We found out that our I800a was not filed.  It sat for 19 days before we found out.  I was crazy with frustration, primarily because we are so behind in our timeline.  It was not our fault and there is nothing that we can do but  move forward.  I told God that I trust him and his timeline..

SECOND:  The good news, we received pictures back from the birthday cake care package that we sent Kylie Gail.  The pictures are wonderful especially the one where she is looking at the family photos.
