"Go West Young....Family."

Well, we had the exciting privilege of visiting with some very special family this year at Christmas. This trip is always a pleasant one. However, this year, the occasion was particularly noteworthy. Alvin, Gwen, and Sage were able to come in from Colorado and join the festivities. This would mean that Jordyn would meet her Aunt Sage "Pi", "Papa" Alvin, and Gwen for the first time. She would also get to see her Auntie Kerry, Barbara, and "H" again. You can imagine our excitement in the prospect of getting these two little girls together, Jordyn and Sage. The results were not disappointing. Here are some of those moments.

Bon Appetit!
Puzzle Mania!
Can't start em' too young.
1 down, 3 to go.
So many gifts, so little time.
Merry Christmas, Jordyn!
A quick break to enjoy the lute.
Gotta love the blocks.
Sage tries to teach Jordyn.
Instant pals.
There is no celebration without books.

In the end, the trip was thoroughly filled with safety, love, and family. The mercies that we receive on a daily basis are beyond our ability to fully perceive. However, the special mercies that we receive in the form of family, though perceived well, are simply too wonderful to be fully understood or appreciated. We have much to be thankful for, and we have felt its weight this Christmas.

Soli Deo Gloria
