Merry Christmas!

(Feel free to sing this to the tune of Jingle Bells)

Dashing through the year
In a new house built by hand
With four kids by our sides
Our precious little band
Too many tales to tell
Adventures big and small
Blessings are too many to count
Among them are you all

Oh, Mackenzie’s in the fourth grade now
She really likes to spell
An excellent help to mommy
And she plays piano so well
Aiden’s conquering first grade
With dimples and red hair
Most days his shirt’s on backwards
But he remembers his underwear

Dawson’s still at home
And he didn’t find it cool
When in October he turned five
And he still could not start school
Maximilian’s nearly two
And after lots of therapy
He’s learned to crawl and walk
Mr. Personality

Oh, I went back to teach this year
Thank God it’s just one class
Even though I’m having fun
It’s quite a daunting task
None of this could be done
Without Nelson by my side
His work and business ventures
Make for quite an exciting ride

Oh, life is full, that is true
This is how it has to be
But God is good this is no lie
It’s so easy to see
We hope He blesses you this year
In every kind of way
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year…hey!
