We had a fantastic Christmas this year. This was the first year in our married life where Shad didn't have nasty finals right before Christmas, & it was wonderful! We stayed in Houston & spent a lot of time with our Hanis family, including Aunt Carrie who flew in from Boston to see us. Hailey & Zach were at the perfect age where everything was completely magical to them, & consequently it was a lot of fun for Shad & me as well. Not only were they excited about Santa Claus, but they are starting to understand the real reason that we celebrate Christmas--Jesus Christ. It is very sweet to watch their testimonies growing.

Wow, I can't believe that I haven't updated my blog for so long. But, yes, we are still alive & well. Here are some of the highlights from the last several months.
For Thanksgiving, we went to visit Grandpa & Grandma Nebeker in Spokane. We had a wonderful visit with them. Marcole & Tyler made it home too, so it was quite a party.
Despite Mom being so sick (and half unconscious) the whole week, she still put on a beautiful dinner with all of the trimmings.
