The holidays have come and gone and now we’re in a new year!   Christmas was a wonderful time to relax with family and enjoy Abigail’s first Christmas.  She couldn’t truly appreciate everything around her but she certainly liked helping Elizabeth wrap gifts.  To me it looked like Abbie was eating more paper then anything and wrapping seemed to take Elizabeth a lot longer but it was also a lot more fun!  We have enjoyed starting our own family traditions with this precious new baby.  It is a joy to know that because of Christ we can raise our daughter knowing His truth and love as best we can.   As we look to the new year I feel excited and a little nervous.  Lord willing, we will be leaving for Cebu in March, 2012.  We are preparing for this move and can’t wait to see what God is going to do in 2012!  Happy New Year to you all and God bless!
