"Your Missionary in Thailand"

Love emails like this:

We were in Thailand over the holidays and in Nong Kai and ran into your son. He is doing well and his language is very good. Our son went to Thailand about 5 years ago and returns returns every couple of years for a visit. When he and his family go we go. Thought you might enjoy the pic

Of course, I enjoy the pic!!
The email and pic made my day!

 We were so excited for Sam to come home from school,
I told him I had put the the tree up all by myself...
he was not impressed! 
I guess this was an off year. 

Sam was at least excited for the rest of Christmas,
Mike got another big map... he loves them.
Luckily he hangs them in his office.  

We had to keep the tradition of the Christmas Mess.

 Christmas Evening we went to Temple Square.
It was a perfect thing to do, not many people there
and we could be reminded of  the true meaning of Christmas! 

We ended the day with hot cocoa, treats and games.

Christmas Eve

We were blessed to spend Christmas Eve with my sister and her family.
We had a delicious dinner followed by the Nativity with her darling grandchildren.

We played the favorite game of passing envelopes while
"Twas the Night before Christmas"
was read.  It was most entertaining with the kids!
What a fun night!

We hurried home to skype with our favorite Missionary and favorite daughter and husband.
It was a perfect Christmas Eve!

Bradley Family Christmas Breakfast

The Family Christmas Party was lots of kids, lots of food and lots of fun!

Christmas Devotional

Darbie came to visit and it was so fun and she had extra tickets to the Christmas Devotional.
We walked thru Temple square on the way and loved the lights!
