Happy New Year 2016

Merry Christmas!

We trust by now each of you who would normally receive our updates by snail mail or email, have indeed received our most recent newsletter. If not, please let us know and we can set that up for you.

Rob was able to have a bit of time away from the hangar during the holiday season. We also sent each of our workers home with a large basket of goodies they wouldn't normally indulge to share with their families (watermelon, instant coffee, home-baked items, and chocolates). 

Christmas Day was a quiet day around our place. We spent it with our family, and spent the morning on Skype with our parents. We were so thankful that the internet basically cooperated with us, making for some really nice visits.

We haven't stayed up for New Year's Eve in quite some time, but decided we would this year. We were glad to share this time with friends, eating yummy foods and playing games and visiting. The kids enjoyed watching movies upstairs and managed to stay up until 10:30, which is quite late compared to their normal 7:00 bedtime around here.

The rest of the holiday weekend has been spent recovering basically. Isn't that normal? The kids have been passing fevers around, and the sniffles. Looking back on past journals of mine, it would seem Joyanne normally chooses the first week of January to catch some kind of a flu.

Happy New Year in 2016. We pray that it is a year of growth and recognizing God's goodness in your own lives.
