We ordered fewer cards this year because we think we lost a lot of addresses in the great computer disaster last January. We're hoping this blog post, shared on facebook, will help take up the slack.
Last night DMP (still recovering from surgery) and I missed the Children's Christmas Cantata at Southwest Central Church of Christ because an evening of rest had to be a priority. It's the second small disappointment of the season for us: for only the third time in our 40 years of marriage, we did not get to go get our Christmas tree together because I stayed in Clifton for the week following Thanksgiving to help Mother with her decorating and shopping. Thanks to brother Bryan for helping David pick out "the prettiest tree ever" which is what I always think. Even when things are a bit painful, we still "keep Christmas" with as much joy and as little stress as possible.
