Family Photo 2013

We didn't do Christmas cards this year, but this may be our best family portrait of 2013.

Kaitlyn Playing Mary

Kaitlyn was invited to a Christmas party over break, which I thought was really neat. I love our small community and the spirit of unity and traditional values. On the way to the party I explained to her that they were going to act out the nativity. She told me she hoped to be Mary.  I was happy and surprised when I picked her up and learned that her wish came true.
