~I was HOME for Christmas...and it wasn't just in my dreams!~

Our dear friend Bro. Don mailed us something to help with the mold in our apartment...while we look for another place for us to live. Thank you, Bro. Don, for your kindness to us.
We feel we should move, for the rainy season will start again soon, and when it rains it drips in all of our bedrooms. While we were in the USA our house was flooded 3 times due to a leaky roof.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY THAT GOD WILL GUIDE US TO THE RIGHT HOUSE TO MOVE TO. GOD KNOWS WHERE AND WE ARE DEPENDING ON HIM TO OPEN THE RIGHT DOOR. THANK YOU!
~Our family loved getting to be HOME for Christmas. One REALLY appreciates getting to be HOME when one has spent several Christmases in another country and away from family! =)
Here Elijah is "helping" Gram make an apple pie. =)~
~I found these cute "Prince of Peace" Christmas paper plates on sale at Hobby Lobby...so we used them for our Christmas dinner.~

~Grandma Bryan holding little Mary.~
~Gramp and Gram's tree with gifts for all. This year we gave our kids each some spending money and Gram took them shopping at Goodwill for each other. It was FUN seeing them be so excited about GIVING! Noah said, "This is the BEST Christmas ever".
I'm quite sure it's because he is old enough now to give gifts as well as receive them.~

~Gramp and Gram got these neat china dolls for Kimberly and Sarah for their room. Gram named them "Phyllis Jean" and Phillip Dean" after Dad Dickinson and his twin sister. =)~
~Sarah with "Phyllis Jean".~



~My silly Dad found an assortment of 12 colorful boxes with lids and wrapped them for my Moma. Each time she thought that she had surely reached the end...there was another box. Finally there was a monetary gift in the tinkiest box...for her to go shopping with. =)~
~Baby Mary got a baby doll for Christmas.~
~Gramp doing "Trotty Horse, a Trotty Horse" with Elijah.~
~Amber and her new baby girl, and Me and mine. =)~



~Before we left Daddy and Moma's house to head back to Cinci Mary started cooing sooooo sweetly to Gramp and Gram.~
~Grandma Bryan and baby Mary.~
We had a wonderful Christmas being together and celebrating JESUS the reason for the Season! Then we headed back to Cinci to work HARD on our own home! Pics coming soon. =)

The pictures were good and Daddy and I too are grateful that you could be "Home for Christmas." Baby Mary's picture really shows that she was communicating with Gramp and he with her. So sweet! Love, Moma

I had to laugh at the names your mother chose for the china dolls. Martha is something else! No wonder Whyjah is always in to something! He takes right after his grandmother! Ha!
Oh...I am praying for Jesus to heal Elijah. We all need him to continue being the sunshine of your home.
With love, Mom D
