The Christmas Spirit

There is nothing like getting a tree to really help the season come alive. We cut down our tree last weekend and I have been loving it. I love turning out all the lights except those on the tree and just relaxing. It is one of those things that I really look forward to.
So, this year for Christmas, we are spending most of it with Wayne's family. We are really looking forward to hanging out with his siblings, especially those that live away from us. We will be spending a couple of days out at the coast all together so that should be a lot of fun.
We are going to have a get together with my family as a few of them that don't live in Salem are going to visit for a few days. I am looking forward to that as well as we don't get together very often. There is nothing that compares to family, and I especially miss family around the holidays. This year is so different with Mom being gone on her mission.....I am sure the holidays will be hard for her as well. But one of my sisters is actually going to Brazil and will be there for Christmas. I am sure they are both looking forward to that. Being a senior missionary sure has some nice perks!!!
We are so thankful for our friends and family and just want to wish all of you the happiest of holidays. We love you and Merry Christmas.
