Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Family Friends!

Aren’t we blessed to celebrate Christmas every year! God made man comes to earth as a child for our redemption, a good meditation all year long and, especially at Christmas.  

This is our first Christmas back in Faribault. We moved from Lakeville, back to Faribault to be closer to our children and grandchildren. Each one is so special to us. Children just plain enhance the joy in Christmas!

Eight grandchildren all over one year old now, (See our family tree on the back) so it will be fun to watch all of them open their gifts by themselves. Toys – yes, they're fun, but so is the wrapping paper, bows and gift bags!
