From our family to you/yours, Merry Christmas! 

I took this photo of little Mitch a few years ago at Shriners Hospital the day before Christmas during one of his regular checkups. Mitch had a countdown to Christmas app on his iPod and was always so cute to count down the days because he looked forward to giving gifts as much as receiving them. 

This afternoon we took our kids to Primary Children's Hospital and donated some things to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) - the same unit that took care of our son. It is always interesting that in moments of sorrow or hardship how serving others can make everything seem light. Today we have felt tremendous gratitude for all that we have been blessed with. There is no sadness today - just love and appreciation.

Our hearts are full this night.
