Mike, Marci and family sang Feliz Navidad . . . . in Spanish!

I read a felt book Christmas Story . . . . Ella and Addie helped illustrate

Steve closed the program with a beautiful guitar rendition of Silent Night.

He also played it in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday and Chloe gave her first talk.
It was really special to have our entire family in attendance.

About Me

My photo
I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
