Merry, merry

Our 2011 Christmas Card, created at

Wishing all of you a bright and happy holiday season ... from our family to yours. 

We've had a tough week. It started with Cassius (our beloved dog) being sick (tumor/cancer) and having surgery. And then, Mike's Grandma had a stroke and isn't expected to survive. But, in all the sadness there is joy. The joy of two precious children who are healthy and happy. 

As I type this I pray that those of you with hearts filled with sadness will find peace and comfort. I pray that those close to me who are struggling with grief will be watched over, comforted and blessed. And may Grandma June find peace as she moves from this life to the next. You are loved.
