December started hard with the loss of Nane and Grandma Mary (actually this was the end if November). We had viewing for Nane in December and also laid her to rest. I am hoping that the rest of the month and 2011 are happy, I know it will be sad though not having Nane, Grandma Mary, Pappy Hays and Grandma Hess with us. We lost so many people we care about this year, we are ready for a good 2012. 
 

We bought this tree and waited for the kids to notice, it took them several minutes. I keep telling the kids we are not getting another tree and they ask my wife if I am serious. I actually wouldn’t mind if this is the only Christmas tree, but I doubt it, my kids are still young.
 

Christmas is a special time of year, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and show our love for each other. Family is the most important thing to me, I live for my family and work hard to give them everything I can. But, the most important thing I can give them is time.
 

Time playing. Time talking. Time praying. Just time to be together.
Life is very valuable and sadly short, I don’t want to miss a special moment with all of the people I love.
 

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
